This girl is downright remarkable. She stood up for women's education in Pakistan. Faced with the Taliban--an extremist Muslim group that declared it illegal for girls to go to school--Malala stood her ground. She never gave up, even after she was shot in the face by a Taliban terrorist. Malala's dream is for education for girls...and boys. Wherever schools close their doors, ignorance opens its own. What was most touching was how Malala stood by her faith. I am not a Muslim, but I admire how she kept praying to God even as other Muslims were being extremely violent towards her. Regardless of how others portrayed religion, Malala knew there was a real God who loved her and cared about her. That is really amazing. At the end of the book, there is Malala's speech to the UN.
