This book is about how Malala is a very bright girl, she stood up for girls education in Pakistan. She was the winner of the Nobel peace prize! She is a girl everyone will remember because of her beautiful acts. In Canada, we are free to really do anything and so that's why we should be thankful for what we have because most of the things we have in our countries other people don't have that in other countries. This is a really good book and I hope that more people can get a hold of this book because it is very inspirational. I absolutely love this book! Rating 5/5.
