About this item

Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local "powhitetrash." At eight years old and back at her mother's side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age-and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns about love for herself and the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors ("I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare") will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned.
Poetic and powerful, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is a modern American classic that will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read.

I read this book when I was young and just wanted to own the book. I'm currently reading it again and still love it as I did the first time. Thank you for your fast turn around time in getting it delivered.

This a replacement for a book that I had several years ago and gave away. I wanted it as a keepsake. I read it a few years back and enjoyed it.
