I don't remember why I picked I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings to read. I think I was looking for something different than my usual science fiction reading. I am glad that I did read it.

The book gives an account of Maya Angelou's life through elementary school and high school. This is not a sentimental book by any means, as there seems to be little in her life about which to be sentimental. The descriptions of the people in her life gives you the impression that you have known them for years.
