She defied the Taliban's rules, fought for education for all girls and nearly lost her life for it. This powerful story of the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner proves that one person really can make a difference.

"...a timely introduction to the life of an international hero who is not much older than the book’s intended audience. . . .Author Rebecca Langston-George carefully highlights the many accomplishments, recognition, awards, and fame that nearly cost Malala her life. Artist Janna Bock is especially adept at capturing Malala’s expressions – just take a look at that hopeful determination on the cover image. . . .Not yet even out of her teens, Malala’s story has really just begun. Her determination to learn – and keep learning at any cost – is inspiration, at any age, for us all." - Book Dragon, Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center
