Buckingham Palace officials said Sunday that Malala Yousafzai has been invited to a reception that will be hosted by the queen and her husband, Prince Philip.

Other guests will include academics and teachers.

Malala chronicles the Taliban attack and its aftermath in an excerpt from her book published in The Sunday Times.

She describes her panic waking up a week after the shooting in a British hospital with no idea where she was. The 16-year-old has made a remarkable recovery from serious head wounds suffered from the 9 October 2012, attack by a Taliban gunman.

The book "I Am Malala" will be published Tuesday.
