Malala will tell the inspirational story of a remarkable teenage girl who risked her life to stand up to the Taliban for her right to go to school. It will also be the story of her unusual family who refused to be cowed or silenced as Islamic militants turned their homeland into hell: an enlightened father from a poor background who overcame a terrible stammer to win a speaking contest, and follow his dream of opening a school, and a beautiful and illiterate mother from an important political family. In vivid detail, Malala will tell of their bravery and determination in the face of extremism, capturing the daily challenges of trying to lead a normal life in a world transformed by terror. It will be a book about the importance of speaking up against intolerance and hate, and about the dangers of complacency.
