A three-million-dollar book deal seems like the least the world can do

Pakistani education activist, youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize nominee, shooting victim, and fifteen-year-old girl Malala Yousafzai has closed a book deal, according to The Guardian. The nonfiction title I Am Malala will be published by Little, Brown and Company this fall, and describe Yousafzai's life to date, which has included campaigning for women’s education in Pakistan's Swat Valley—work that lead to her being shot in the head by Taliban gunmen last October.

Note: The image featured in this post came from Time magazine, which chose Yousafzai as the runner-up for their 2012 "Person of the Year" issue. You can read their article about her here, which I found fascinating.
