I Am Malala

Jacob Luma

By writing this very personal story—and sharing details that place the reader inside her everyday life—does Malala increase your concern about the fate of women in South Asia and the Middle East? About girls worldwide getting an education? About how the Taliban has infiltrated Malala’s Swat Valley? How does reading this book compare to reading news stories in the New York Times or watching CNN?

I have known about the struggles many women have in other parts of the world. I think Malala has power in educating a new demographic of young people. I think this is more a personal question. How do you react to issues girls and education after reading this book? Certainly education in Pakistan is an honor to get rather than a right. In North America many kids, both girls and boys, take it for granted.
