X: A Novel by Ilysah Shabazz
This book is about the infamous Malcolm X. It is not about what he is famous for, but about his childhood life until he figures out who he is. My favorite part is when Malcolm is in a prison, in a hopeless state, and figures out a way to get out of prison (through writing letters to his family and obtaining information). His family changes religion. With the help of a family member, he begins to change. This change is when he begins to come out of his shell, and starts to believe what his father taught him. I would recommend this to my friends because Malcolm X is truly inspiring in his transformation from a kid to an adult.
