Who Was Anne Frank? (Who Was...?)

Who Was Anne Frank? (Who Was...?) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On October 9, 2012, a gunman boarded a school bus in Pakistan, asked for fifteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai, and shot her in the head. In critical condition, Malala was flown to a military hospital before being transferred for further care in England. Miraculously, she survived. Malala had been targeted by the Taliban for a blog she began in 2009 for the BBC, writing about how hard it was for girls in her area to attend school. Now a global advocate for millions who are denied an education, Malala has become the symbol of hope for her own generation. She is the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and still a kid herself, making her story an important addition to the Who Was...? series.

Synopsis:

Malala Yousafzai was a girl who loved to learn but was told that girls would no longer be allowed to go to school. She wrote a blog that called attention to what was happening in her beautiful corner of Pakistan and realized that words can bring about change. She has continued to speak out for the right of all children to have an education. In 2014 she won the Nobel Peace Prize.
