I am Malala
The girl who fights fror education.
Malala was a fun loving girl who loved school more than anything she made friends and got to hang out with them. She got to learn about all kinds of things she would never even be able to imagine but when she was ten, the Taliban entered her hometown in Pakistan and turned her beautiful home into a war zone. They controlled all forms of media, closed schools, took over houses, kidnapped people, shut down businesses, publicly whipped people, and blew up houses. At first they thought it was just temporary and would all be over soon, but that was just the beginning. After moving around to several houses after her school got closed and her home became the middle of a battle ground they finally got life back together. Malala became the woman she is today and fought from the right for everyone to have an education weather your poor or rich or man or woman. “When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”(Yousafzai)
"We humans don’t realize how great God is. He has given us an extraordinary brain and a sensitive loving heart. He has blessed us with two lips to talk and express our feelings, two eyes which see a world of colors and beauty, two feet which walk on the road of life, two hands to work for us, a nose which smells the beauty of fragrance, and two ears to hear the words of love."(Yousafzai 298) This is the moat powerful quote because even after she was severely hurt and almost died she didn't give up her hope and faith and that makes her a rally strong individual.
I give "I am Malala" 3.5 stars because it is a good book but kind or difficult to read. One of the reasons I am Malala is hard to read is because it has a lot of words that are from Pakistan and it makes it kind of difficult and you have to look up a lot of words in the book. Also there are a lot of descriptions that are hard to imagine because it wouldn't happen in America so its hard to believe it's real. This book show you the reality of life in other country's and how hard it is to live.
