<b>The <i>New York Times </i>bestselling true story of an all-American girl and a boy from Zimbabwe -- and the letter that changed both of their lives forever.<br /></b><br />It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. <br />Martin was lucky to even receive a pen-pal letter. There were only ten letters, and fifty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one.<br /><br />That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives.<br /><br />In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends--and better people--through their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire you to look beyond your own life and wonder about the world at large and your place in it.

<b>The bestselling memoir by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.</b><i><br /><br />I Am Malala. This is my story. </i> <br />Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said music was a crime. They said women weren't allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn't go to school.<br />Raised in a once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes. So she fought for her right to be educated. And on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school.<br />No one expected her to survive.<br />Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which has been reimagined specifically for a younger audience and includes exclusive photos and material, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world -- and did. <br />Malala's powerful story will open your eyes to another world and will make you believe in hope, truth, miracles and the possibility that one person -- one young person -- can inspire change in her community and beyond.<br /><br />
