Additional Details

Autobiography.

From the Publisher: A phenomenal #1 bestseller that has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly three years, this memoir traces Maya Angelou's childhood in a small, rural community during the 1930s. Filled with images and recollections that point to the dignity and courage of black men and women, Angelou paints a sometimes disquieting, but always affecting picture of the people-and the times-that touched her life.

Great!

This book was a lot better than I expected. Usually, I find myself not enjoying novels I read for school. But this one was amazing. Angelou's prose is beautiful, and I fell in love with Maya. This definitely has me considering reading the next book.

Not for kids

This book shows how things were like in the south,country and in the cities, for African Americans. There were some events that I don't think should be read by kids. I didn't like this book very much. Really, don't read this until you are in high school or older.

uhhh

This book is not something to be read by a kid--I was really surprised in the middle. Not good AT ALL

Interesting

This book is good but also extremely sad. It's also pretty controversial so it's banned in a lot of schools and stuff...

Good Book

She does a good job telling the real life tales of the deep south.
