I am Malala

Book number 1 of 2014 complete.

An interesting and desperately sad tale of a young girl’s fight for her right to education.

Much of the book is focused on daily life for Malala before the shooting and, as ever, it was incredibly interesting to learn about a different culture.  It is heartbreaking to know that there are still cultures where education is not a basic right and i fully admire Malala for fighting for what she truly believes in.  The courage her family has shown since the shooting is also commendable.  I have taken lines from the book and intend to display these within our English area to remind our students how lucky they are to have such a rich entitlement.
