Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Spring)
The Pakistani activist's memoir moves from childhood to her shooting by the Taliban to being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The message that "one child...can change the world" makes for an inspiring, upbeat read. Adapted from I Am Malala, this "first chapter book edition" features large type, short chapters, and spot illustrations. More on the Nobel Prize and a pronunciation guide are appended. Timeline.
