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."
