This is the fascinating story of an amazing and exceptional young lady, which not only describes her life to the age of 16 years but paints a vivid picture of life in the Swat Valley in Pakistan. The reader gets an excellent idea of the effect of the Taliban on the lives of the inhabitants of that area, particularly females. You can also sense the warmth of her feelings for the loving family in which she was brought up. Malala's story is truly inspiring and I shall be keeping my copy of this book for my 3 year old grand-daughter, to give to her as soon as she is old enough to read it.
