    Malala Seals $3 Million Book Deal

    Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai is pictured holding a backpack in Birmingham, central England, on March 19, 2013 before returning to school for the first time since she was shot in the head by the Taliban in October 2012 for campaigning for girls' education. The 15-year-old said she had "achieved her dream" and was looking forward to meeting new friends at the independent Edgbaston High School for Girls in Birmingham, where she is now living. Malala was flown to Britain after the attack for surgery for her head injuries and underwent several operations as recently as last month.

    Three million dollars is probably the least she deserves. After being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman simply for asserting her right to an education, Malala Yousafzai will get a chance to tell her story. The 15-year-old Pakistani activist will publish her life story this fall in a book called I Am Malala, publisher Weidenfeld & Nicolson announced Wednesday. The deal is reportedly worth three million dollars. "I want to tell my story, but it will also be the story of 61 million children who can't get education," Malala said in a press release. "I want it to be part of the campaign to give every boy and girl the right to go to school. It is their basic right."
