I’m going to tell you about a biography called “I am Malala”

First  of all I will tell you about Malala. She is a confident young woman who believes that everyone is equal.  After reading just eight chapters you can

realize just how lucky we are to live in such a great state with such great people.


She has had a hard life.

For instance, when she was only ten she heard on the radio that girls should not be able to go to school. They also said that music was a crime.

All she wanted was an education

Raised in once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes in. So she fought for her right to be educated.

On October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life. She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school.

“One child, One teacher, One book, and One pen can change the world.”

Malala was shot in the head while coming home from school.

Now my review on the book:

I personally think that the book is very interesting. At the first part of the book Malala was talking about her family.  What I thought was funny was when Malala was talking about how her and her brother Khushal used to always fight over everything! Who got the best grades, over the t.v remote, over anything, you name it.

One of the best parts is when Malala talks about when they would always play cricket ball. In case you don’t know what cricket ball

The game of Cricket is similar to baseball.

is, her definition is a ball game played between two teams of 11 players each on a field at the center of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch.

Cricket is just like the game of bas that we play here.
