I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
[book cover]

When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.

When she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head 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 sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world.

The Fog Within by Nick Shamhart

Autism is not a meaningless cause or concern for Megan Cooper. She calls it the fog because it is an intangible force that intrudes and affects every moment of her day, from childhood on through adulthood. The Fog Within is the story of Megan's life, the story of autism as seen through her eyes, through a fog.

During their enlistment in the Navy Seabees, Althouse and his fellow members of the Seventy-Fifth Naval Construction Battalion all came to love the dog known as Brownie. He was smuggled aboard the USS Del Brasil and traveled with his master to nine different islands in the South Pacific. Brownie became the official mascot of the Seventy-Fifth, and at each island Althouse kept a record of his stay in a small notebook.

Roy's letters home were often filled with the antics of his beloved Brownie while also providing a glimpse of what life was like for a Seabee during the war. Against all odds, Brownie returned to the United States to live out his life with his best friend in Bucyrus. Their story is one of adventure, friendship, and love that spanned across oceans and time.
