So glad I finally read not just about the Taliban shooting Malala over her education campaign, but also about her family and her country's history and culture.

Quando o Talibã tomou controle do vale do Swat, uma menina levantou a voz. Malala Yousafzai recusou-se a permanecer em silêncio e lutou pelo seu direito à educação. Mas em 9 de outubro de 2012, uma terça-feira, ela quase pagou o preço com a vida. Malala foi atingida na cabeça por um tiro à queima-roupa dentro do ônibus no qual voltava da escola. Poucos acreditaram que ela sobreviveria. Mas a recuperação milagrosa de Malala a levou em uma viagem extraordinária de um vale remoto no norte do Paquistão para as salas das Nações Unidas em Nova York. Aos dezesseis anos, ela se tornou um símbolo global de protesto pacífico e a candidata mais jovem da história a receber o Prêmio Nobel da Paz. Eu sou Malala é a história de uma família exilada pelo terrorismo global, da luta pelo direito à educação feminina e dos obstáculos à valorização da mulher em uma sociedade que valoriza filhos homens. O livro acompanha a infância da garota no Paquistão, os primeiros anos de vida escolar, as asperezas da vida numa região marcada pela desigualdade social, as belezas do deserto e as trevas da vida sob o Talibã. Escrito em parceria com a jornalista britânica Christina Lamb, este livro é uma janela para a singularidade poderosa de uma menina cheia de brio e talento, mas também para um universo religioso e cultural cheio de interdições e particularidades, muitas vezes incompreendido pelo Ocidente. “Sentar numa cadeira, ler meus livros rodeada pelos meus amigos é um direito meu”, ela diz numa das últimas passagens do livro. A história de Malala renova a crença na capacidade de uma pessoa de inspirar e modificar o mundo.… (lisätietoja)

This book is really an amazing read. It's perfect for really young children and its story follows really influential people throughout the years who have helped shaped the world. The book shows us that these people are still human and just like us in certain ways.

I think this book has a laudable purpose, it just feels rather that it is aimed at a younger readership, as there's a lack of nuance in here.
I'm reminded of the quote, the death of 1 man is a tragedy, that of millions a statistic. We often hear of refugees in terms of the numbers trying to cross or the number seeking asylum. It isn't often that those faceless numbers become human. This books aims, in part, to do that, to tell individual stories of some of those many people.
It selects just women, mostly young, and tells their story. That means that for the most part they aren't the ones faced with the decision to leave, they are caught up in that decision. The mixed emotions between the leaving behind something that was familiar,even if now dangerous, and moving to something entirely new and scary is there, but glossed over. Their stories all ended up sounding very similar, there was little in the way of individual voices here and the stories had a cookie cutter feel about them. It is a book with laudable aim, but it didn't land.… (lisätietoja)
