This book is about a girl named, Malala Yousafzai. She was a very lonely girl. She lived in a place where they never allowed girls to go to school or have a proper education. That was one thing that she hated. Malala, refused to follow that rule, she took a stand towards it. After all, she was the daughter of a school owner. It was said that even her father wanted her to get a proper education. You can follow along with the mysterious story of how Malala achieves what she wants for the girls in her entire country.
I loved how the author showed the emotion through word. She did not exactly tell, but she showed her emotion. Then again the author was Malala Yousafzai. Many of the situations inspired me to think what a hard life she went through and yet she never gave up. The style of the writing is what I loved the most about it.
One memorable thing in the book was when she always used to place her ears against the walls of her bedroom so she and her friend could share secrets together.
