Non-Fiction Book of the Year - Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2014

The bestselling memoir of NOBEL PRIZE winner, Malala Yousafzai, the school girl who stood up to the Taliban.

In 2009 Malala Yousafzai began writing a blog on BBC Urdu about life in the Swat Valley as the Taliban gained control, at times banning girls from attending school. When her identity was discovered, Malala began to appear in both Pakistani and international media, advocating the freedom to pursue education for all. In October 2011, gunmen boarded Malala's school bus and shot her in the face, a bullet passing through her head and into her shoulder. Remarkably, Malala survived the shooting. At a very young age, Malala Yousafzai has become a worldwide symbol of courage and hope. Her shooting has sparked a wave of solidarity across Pakistan, not to mention globally, for the right to education, freedom from terror and female emancipation.

    Moving and illuminating - OBSERVER

    Her story is astonishing - SPECTATOR

    This memoir brings out her best qualities. You can only admire her courage and determination ... She also has an air of innocence, and there is an indestructible confidence. She speaks with such poise that you forget that Malala is 16 - THE TIMES
