At first I felt like I’d read too many books like this before- memoirs of women in Muslim countries – usually at about young adult level but okay for adult. As I got more into it though the story is a bit different in that Malala goes into the history of her area in northern Pakistan and its struggles with the Taliban in a very informative way.
For those who don’t know – Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize “for (her) struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education” http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/2014/yousafzai-facts.html
She won the Nobel Prize after the book was published. >>>>MORE: no spoilers >>>>
