Recommendation Friday: Jenna Matthews Recommends “I Am Malala”

I Am Malala

Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb

I recommend this book because it inspires courage and humbles us to the fact that we are very blessed to be able to freely attend school in the US.  Furthermore, Malala paints the picture of her world in vivid detail. Her account of living in the Swat Valley of Pakistan gives the reader insight into the cultural psyche of the impact of political and religious upheaval on her people.  This teenager is an amazing peaceful activist for education around the world.
