I AM MALALA, YOUNG READERS EDITION How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Neela Vaswani, Malala Yousafzai

Young Adult Young Adult • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In a work this personal and important, it’s vital to utilize a reader who engages the listener and renders an authentic interpretation of the writer, both physically and emotionally. Neela Vaswani does this admirably. She sounds like Westerners would imagine Malala Yousafzai, now slightly older than when we first heard of her, would sound. Malala is the Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban when she spoke out in favor of girls going to school. Vaswani’s Indian accent is far from overpowering, and her diction is crisp and easy on the ear. Her cadence also adds to the realism of the reading. While the book is aimed at young adults, adult listeners should find equal pleasure in this book. R.C.G.
