I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

Author: Maya Angelou
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou is an excellent novel that everyone should read. It has a tone that installs pity into the reader for Marguerite, who has a tough life living with her grandparents then alternating between her two separated parents. Most of the events in the story I have not seen in my own life, though I could picture the story in my mind with detail, and feel the same feelings as the characters. It was great to read about something that seemed unreal to me, although I know the story is true.
