I Am Malala will tell the inspirational story of a remarkable teenage girl who risked her life to stand up to the Taliban for her right to go to school. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, Malala Yousafzai, a 15-year-old Pakistani girl, was shot in the face at point-blank range by the Taliban.

Overnight, Malala became a global symbol of peaceful protest and education for all and the youngest person ever to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I Am Malala will be the story of her unusual family who refused to be cowed or silenced as Islamic militants turned their homeland into hell: an enlightened father from a poor background who overcame a terrible stammer to win a speaking contest, and follow his dream of opening a school, and a beautiful and illiterate mother from an important political family.

In vivid detail, I Am Malala will tell of their bravery and determination in the face of extremism, capturing the daily challenges of trying to lead a normal life in a world transformed by terror. It will be a book about the importance of speaking up against intolerance and hate, and about the dangers of complacency. 

"I want to tell my story, but it will also be the story of 61 million children who can't get an education. I want it to be part of the campaign to give every boy and girl the right to go to school. It is their basic right.” - Malala Yousafzai

"They shot her at point-blank range - and made her stronger. In a brutal attempt to silence her voice, it grew louder.” - Angelina Jolie

The Malala Fund was established to help realize Malala's dream of education for all girls. http://www.malalafund.org/

Malala Yousafzai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in October 2014.
