Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander.

Alexander, a highly trained neurosurgeon, believed that near death experiences were fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. Then, his own brain was attached by a rare illness; it shut down; and he lay in a coma for seven days. During that time, he journeyed beyond this world, encountered an angelic being who guided him to a place where he met and spoke with the Divine source of the universe.

I Am Malala: The girl who stood up for education and was shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafazai and Christina Lamb.

At age 15, Malala was shot in the head point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At 16, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest person ever to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Copies of the book are available at the library.
