December 2016 Book Reminder

Whaaaat?! How is it almost December? I know I probably feel this way every year, but somehow it seems like it really flew by more quickly than ever before. Thanksgiving is next week, for goodness' sake!

Well, for those of us who are left to finish out the year, here is your final book of 2016. I'm excited for it!


Synopsis: 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 teh cause: She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now she is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest- ever Nobel Peace Prize nominee. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, which includes excessive 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.
