With her powerful new book, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai starts with her own story of displacement as an Internally Displaced Person to show what it means to lose your home, your community, and the only world you’ve ever known. She also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys to refugee camps and the cities where refugee girls and their families have settled.

In a time of immigration crises, war, and border conflicts, We Are Displaced is an important reminder from one of the world’s most famous persons who experienced displacement that everyone deserves universal human rights and a home.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Yousafzai gathers stories from girls around the world who, like her, have had to flee their homes…telling the deeply personal stories of displacement and disruption…The accounts are intimate and…as if the narrator were sharing her story with a trusted new friend.” New York Times
“A stirring and timely book that strips the political baggage from the words ‘migrant’ and ‘refugee,’ telling the deeply personal stories of displacement and disruption that were lived by Yousafzai and nine other girls.” New York Times Book Review
“Uplifting…Each refugee’s tale of survival is equal parts devastating and inspiring…Yousafzai specifically states that her purpose is to transform refugees from nameless, faceless statistics into who they really are: humans whose identities are more than just their displaced status. A poignant, fascinating, and relevant read.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The contributors’ strength, resilience, and hope in the face of trauma is astounding, and their stories…profoundly moving.” Publishers Weekly
“Listeners will especially enjoy the foreword of this audiobook, narrated by Malala Yousafzai, in which she acknowledges that her well-known background will provide context for the many personal stories of loss that are told by refugee girls. Before each affecting story, listeners are given a brief introduction that recounts how Malala met the contributor. These intros provide consistency as the same narrator, Neela Vaswani, reads them. They include several passages that have been updated for the audio edition. Deepti Gupta delivers most of the interviews of the girls…This is a painful and powerful listening experience that imparts current and historical events with emotional depth.” AudioFile
