Criticism be damned, I loved this book.
We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.
Education is education. We should learn everything and then choose which path to follow." Education is neither Eastern nor Western, it is human.She spoke up for education - particularly for girls - and was doing such an inspirational job, that she became a 'problem'.
One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.She gave a voice to the ever-silenced children, especially the girls, who were forced to cover up and stay at home. To give up their education because it was "improper".
When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.And when the Taliban heard of her, they decided that she, a fifteen year old girl, needed to be killed.
We were scared, but our fear was not as strong as our courage.In short - amazing. Truly amazing.
If one man can destroy everything, why can't one girl change it?The Finer Books Club - 2018 Reading Challenge - an audiobook read by the author
