A struggle of a little girl in a world where the women are least respected. A girl’s life described with the history and the present. Many things that i liked about the book – a father who always stand-up for his daughter, a girl who is brave amidst all the tension in the country.
With so much of news flying everywhere, one tends to judge a country based on its politics, but the real truth can be known from the country men/women.
It is absolutely strange to see that the women folk are treated so badly even in this modern world. Somehow at a few places, I feel this book has been politicized.
It is good read overall but i would like to highlight a few things that I think Malala needs to get her facts right. Just because, more than half of the state’s(Kashmir) population is one religion, it doesn’t mean that state is rightfully other country’s(Pakistan). The divide between these countries (just like dividing a family) is one of the not-so-good things that has happened in the history. Each countrymen and women need to embrace each other and leave the dirty politics and the bitterness it creates aside.

And for that I would gladly sacrifice all”
