This was such a strong book. It trully takes you into her life from a good beginning. At first, I was a little bored with all the historical facts, and I just wanted it to proceed to what she had done. After finishing the book however, it was good for it to be in the book. Everything was explained so well. I liked being able to identify with her and her friends by the movies and shows she talked about. This is a book that everyone should read to see of what is going on over there. But especially all young girls. This helps to appreciate things we may feel are just normal. I feel better for having read this story. Malala has done so much and survived through so much at such a young age. She is a hero.
