I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai was such an interesting read! The story captures the Taliban's rise to power in the Swat Valley of Pakistan in a way that helps readers really understand the complex religious and social issues of the region. I was touched not only by Malala's story, but also the connected stories of her family members. I found her father's history and actions to be as inspiring as Malala's! This is definitely worth a read for anyone interested in education, and the power one girl can build by speaking out!
