I Am Malala

Genre: Memoir; Author: Christina Lamb, Malala Yousafzai; Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

Silently and menacingly — just like the vampires in the Twilight books she was reading — the Taliban flooded Malala’s remote Pakistan valley. Girls, they announced, could no longer attend school. Malala became a public face of defiance, showing unimaginable pluck by speaking to journalists and writing a blog for the BBC about her passion for education. Then, shortly before her 15th birthday, she was attacked on a bus by a Taliban gunman. Malala’s bravely eager voice can seem a little thin here, in I Am Malala, likely thanks to her co-writer, but her powerful message remains undiluted. B+
