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 the most fabulous autobiography ever written. Maya Angelou's story of her childhood is beyond amazing when she looks at her past and writes it all down. Her story is interesting and real. Angelou has a way of explaining all she's seen and done that lets the reader see and feel just as she did. Angelou's voice as an older woman telling the stories of her childhood is magnificent. She has lived a very intriguing life, and has shared her feelings in great detail, but easy for the reader to understand perfectly and is left with many thoughts.
