Working on her’most personal’ book yet is Malala Yousafzai.

The young woman from Pakistan who won the Nobel Peace Prize and is known for her support of girls’ education and for surviving a Taliban assassination attempt while she was in her teens is currently writing a new memoir.

The memoir was revealed on Monday by the Simon & Schuster imprint Atria Books. There is no set release date and no title at this time.

Yousafzai’s best-selling book “I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban,” which was released in 2013, the year before she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17, is among her earlier works. Since then, she married Asser Malik, a manager for the Pakistan Cricket Board, and she received her degree from Oxford University. A contract between her production firm, Extracurricular, and Apple TV+ covers a variety of film and television projects.

“The last few years of my life have been marked by extraordinary transformation, and all the anguish and joy that accompanies growth,” Yousafzai, 25, said in a statement released by Atria. “This is my most personal book yet and I hope that readers will find recognition, reassurance, and insight in my story.”

The newly released book is described by Atria as a “breathtaking story of recovery and search for identity, a candid exploration of her coming-of-age in the public spotlight, and an intimate look at her life today.” Young readers and picture book editions are also planned.
