I have picked this book as my read of the month - "I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb"
If you only read one book this year make sure it is - I am Malala. It will inspire you and make you grateful to live in the West with all its opportunities.
This young lady is an inspiration to us all and she will surely go on to do fantastic things in the future. She fought for education for girls in Pakistan and paid a very heavy price at the age of 13 - when a man got on her school bus and asked "Who is Malala?" Her reply had terrible consequences. He shot her in the head at point blank range and her recovery leads us on an amazing journey.
