Sometimes we live to witness heroism, bravery, forward thinking and resilience in the very young.  I am Malala : the girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban is the story of such a youth.  As a young Pakistani student Malala advocated for women's rights and education in the Taliban-controlled Swat Bailey.  She survived an assassination attempt and later became the youngest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize.  It is humbling to read how human integrity, truth and fairness stands tall and upright in the face and voice of a child.  This is a book you don't want to miss reading.
