(Newser) Malala Yousufzai has done a lot of living in her 15 years, and a publisher agrees. Weidenfeld & Nicolson yesterday announced that it would release the teen's memoir in the UK this fall (Little, Brown will do the same in the US, notes the AP). The Pakistani girl will reportedly receive about $3 million for I Am Malala, reports the Guardian. Says Malala, "I want to tell my story, but it will also be the story of 61 million children who can't get education. 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." NBC News has an excerpt. (Read more Malala Yousafzai stories.)
