Today’s most well-known education activist is a teenaged girl: Malala Yousafzai. At age 15, the Pakistani student was shot by a Taliban gunman at point-blank range for pushing back against an edict barring women and girls from attending school. The shooting only steeled her resolve to fight for education rights, a battle that helped lead to the signing of Pakistan’s first Right to Education bill. I Am Malala tells her inspiring story, and the young readers’ edition makes it accessible for the generation that most needs to hear it. See all of the Best Young Readers’ Books of 2014.
