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.

Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz.

Written with Horwitz’s signature blend of humor, history, and hard-nosed journalism, Confederates in the Attic brings alive old battlefields and new ones: “classrooms, courts, country bars” where the past and the present collide often in explosive ways. Poignant and picaresque, haunting and hilarious, it speaks to anyone who has ever felt drawn to the mythic South and to the dark romance of the Civil War.
