A letter of sisterhood to Malala Yousafzai expressing the belief that every girl has the right to go to school. This beautiful collection of photographs from international agency Plan brings together its "Because I am a Girl" message with the powerful presence of Malala Yousafzai. After being shot for the simple act of going to school in her native Pakistan, Malala has become an international girls' rights icon and a contender for the Nobel Peace Prize.
   The book is written as a letter from girls around the world to Malala, as they express their sympathy, sisterhood and admiration for her. These girls, too, know the barriers that stand in the way of a girl going to school. For some it is poverty, for others, early marriage, discrimination or violence. In Malala, they recognize a leader and a friend. A powerful tool for social justice education and for commemorating July 12, Malala's birthday, recognized by the UN as Malala Day and celebrated around the world. A portion of proceeds will go to Plan's Because I am a Girl campaign.

I liked this book because it teaches you about in some countries some girls are not allowed to get a education and they get shot because other people do not want them to have an education.

In this book it was really sad. It was about a teenage girl who just wanted her education. I liked how she stood up for the girls in Pakistan. I think you should read this book

I loved this book. I think it should make us girls feel lucky that we live in such a wonderful country. This story also makes us think about the unlucky girls in the world. Those girls who can't go to school. Malala was a very brave soul even after what had happened to her she still fought for what was right. Which was for the ability to go to school. I think what Malala did was right and she did have a point. If men are allowed to go to school and be educated why can't women. I loved this book it was short but very powerful.

I think that this book was good because it told everyone to stand up for their selves.I even think that this should be in non fiction if it's true.
