If my seventh grade teacher had not made us read this book i would have never read it. Maya Angelou is a great poet and a excellent book writer but this is one book i really didn't put much interest into. I can't tell you what it was about because i really don't remember because i was just reading it for school.

I read these when I was 15 and just fell in love with Maya Angelou. This look like it has some of her best Bios including the newer "Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now'
Wish List!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel like it's sacrilegious to have given Maya anything less than 5 stars, but despite the couple of classic poems in this book, it's really just OK. Sorry, Maya. I still love you.
