Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said girls couldn't go to school but because Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes, she fought for her right to be educated. In 2012 she was shot while riding the bus on her way home from school. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition reimagined for a younger audience, the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world—and did.
