The book was about a teenage girl named Malala who refused to be told what to do and what they cannot do. Since she refused to follow the rules of the Talibans, she was shot in the head when she took the bus home from school. She survived and she fought for her countries’ rights. Through a hard fought journey, she achieved her dream.
I liked the book because it was about a girl who fought for her rights and her country’s rights. At first her country was being ruled by the Taliban and she was shot because she wasn’t following their rules. She was courageous and very patriotic and can relate to anyone in the US. This book would probably be on my bookshelf because the book was inspiring to me.
The most memorable part of the book would be when Malala got shot in the head. Although it wasn’t a happy occasion, it sparked a girl’s dream to achieve freedom.

Hi! I’m Amanda, the Teen Librarian at Fairfield Area Library. I have a four-legged child named Bailey, a cat who acts like a dog. He plays fetch, chases his tail and comes when he is called.
Favorite Books: I love reading mystery novels and young adult fiction. Team Peeta! My favorite books are always changing, but my favorite series at the moment are the Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken and the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Anything by Jasper Fforde, Rick Riordan, Steve Berry or Steve Sheinkin.
Favorite Food: I love food, but nothing tops homemade macaroni and cheese.
Favorite Music: I will listen to almost anything; but I tend to lean more towards pop, rock, show tunes and country. I am also a huge fan of a-capella music (which includes all genres). Queen is still my favorite band of all time.
Favorite Reference Question: “Where is your Teen Section?”
