LONDON (AP) - Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head by the Taliban, is writing a memoir.
Publisher Weidenfeld and Nicolson says it will release "I am Malala" in Britain this fall. Little, Brown will publish it in the United States.
A Taliban gunman shot Malala on Oct. 9, while she was on her way home from school in northwestern Pakistan. The militant group said it targeted her because she promoted "Western thinking" and criticized the Taliban's behavior.
She spent several months in a British hospital, but was released last month and has returned to school in Britain.
Malala said in a statement Wednesday that she hoped telling her story would be "part of the campaign to give every boy and girl the right to go to school."
