    Overall, I thought this was a pretty good biography. It has a lot of important things, but it took too long to get a point across. 2 out of the 9 chapters are all about where she lives. I mean it could have been way shorter if they didn't talk so much about one subject. However, this book has many significant details that helped me understand Malala's life, but again it could have been quicker paced. I recommend this book to people who like biographies.

    I loved this book. Malala Yousafzai is an Inspiration to the world. She stood up for what she thought right. She believed that all girls should have an education after the Taliban took away schooling from girls. In this book you will go through a journey from when she was born to winning the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves inspiring and leading woman.

    The book "Malala Yousafzai: Education Activist" by Rebecca Rowell is such an outstanding book! As a student, when we started the biography unit, I wasn't too thrilled to learn, but then I stumbled across this book and now Im in love!

My favorite part of the book is when Rebecca Rowell was talking about how Malala got shot in the head but still managed to survive, it was really thrilling for me. I recommend this book to readers who like biology type books.

This book is personally one of my favorites. It's very inspiriting and courageous. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys heartening books and non fiction books.

    "Malala Yousafzai: Education Activist" by Rebecca Rowell is about the inspiring girl, Malala Yousafzai. She made history by advocating for girls' rights to go to school. This Pakistani schoolgirl still goes to school even though the Taliban, a group of extreme Islamic people who don't allow Pakistani girls an education could injure Malala or worse. This book goes into detail about Malala's activism and life story.

    This biography is very well-written. I especially appreciate the organization of the information. The book begins with a chapter on the assassination attempt on Malala. With that image in the reader's mind, the next few chapters give background information on Pakistan, Islam, and the Taliban. Because Malala is introduced first, readers have her face in mind and they can picture her in the context of growing up in that country and religion and with the threat of the Taliban ever present.

With that image in the reader's mind, the next few chapters give background information on Pakistan, Islam, and the Taliban. Because Malala is introduced first, readers have her face in mind and they can picture her in the context of growing up in that country and religion and with the threat of the Taliban ever present. Once that background is set, the book then starts at the beginning of Malala's life and traces her journey to the present. Details about her family and friends, her education, and her activism are explained as the sequence of events unfolds. Sidebars with additional information about topics like the Pashtun ethnic group, health risks in Pakistan, or the difference between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims are also helpful for readers who may not be familiar with the cultural factors of the country. The nonfiction features throughout the book are very helpful for those doing research or a biographical report for school. There is a timeline of events, a glossary, a list of additional resources, and a concise 2-page spread of "Essential Facts" about Malala's life. The table of contents and the index make it easy to locate specific information within the book. The publishers have identified this for an interest level of grades 6 - 12, and I would also recommend this for middle or high school students. There is one issue that would prevent me from placing it in an elementary school. Within the book there are mentions of the tactics used by the Taliban to intimidate and punish those who do not follow their dictates. One of the tactics listed is rape. Most elementary students are not emotionally mature enough to deal with that topic - and parents and teachers would not feel comfortable with exposing students to that subject or discussing it with them.

    This biography of Malala Yousafzai by Rebecca Rowell is a great book that she wrote ever. I feel very confident about this book because it talks about a hard life she had growing up in Packistan. Back over there, woman had no education. Malala didn't agree with these laws and took a stand to the Talibans and wanted girls to have rights and education. Embark on a journey that a 17 year old made happen in her town and around the world today. That is why I give this book 5 star rating.

After reading this memoir, I am eternally grateful for Malala's sacrifice for women everywhere for the ability to learn.

    This is a very interesting biography of the young Pakistani girl who was attacked for standing up for something she and her family believed in--the freedom for girls to go to school. This may not sound that interesting for most middle school students, who sometimes think that school is boring, and cuts into their time on Facebook or YouTube. But for Malala, it was a major issue, because she lived in a place where the Taliban ruled, and they actually tried to assassinate her as she was coming hom This is a very interesting biography of the young Pakistani girl who was attacked for standing up for something she and her family believed in--the freedom for girls to go to school.

The book is filled with lots of photos, and many sidebars with some good information on Pakistan, rights for girls, and what life is like in a typical town in Pakistan.

This was amazing...if you want to learn about Malala.I read her autobiography and loved it so it was fun to read her story but through another person telling the story. The book goes through her struggles and challenges along the way through her fight for girls rights to go to school. She is very brave in doing that considering she got death threats and was actually shot. The was truly amazing.I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about Malala and her fight in another person view.

    Malala, Swat Valley Pakistan, Malala wanted to go to school and for girls to have educational right, but the Taliban did not think that girls should go to so and they baned girls from going to school, So Malala spoke out, Then the Taliban shot her but she survived and shines as a symbol for other girls that they should go to school and they do have the right to get an education.

    Such an incredible story and one I can't wait to talk about with my students next year- (especially those who do not see education, especially for girls, as a privelege). What an amazing girl. Can't wait to read her book "I am Malala"!
