Malala Yousafzai and Patricia McCormick
The book is narrated in the first person from the perspective of the author, Malala Yousafzai. The first-person narration allows the reader to closely follow Malala's thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
The text alternates between the present and past tenses as Malala narrates the events of her life and compares them to her present situation.
Malala is the author, and this book is a personal memoir. The subtitle, The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban, is a response to the question the gunmen asked before she was shot, "Who is Malala?" By referencing the answer to this question in the title of the book, Malala asserts her identity and defies those who attempted to kill her.
