Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls is a chest full of
inspiration for young girls. It is an anthology of
short stories of rebellious and daring women who
changed the world. I liked the story about Malala
Yousafzai a lot. She is known for her activism in
promoting education for girls. When she was only
15, a Taliban gunman shot her in the head in an
assassination attempt in retaliation for her work. She
survived because of her strong will to live. And at
17, she received the Nobel Peace Prize, becoming
the youngest Nobel laureate. If you liked this short
story, then this book is definitely for you!! There are
99 more fascinating and inspiring stories like this.
And the writer has also published two more editions
of this book!!
I would recommend this book for ages 8-14. I
believe that all parents should make an effort to buy
this book for their daughters. I hope you all enjoy
reading this book!
