I've finished reading I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the story of the young life of Marguerite Johnson, also known as Maya. I loved the ending but won't reveal what happens lest I spoil it for someone else who may read this book. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is the beginning book of this seven-volume series by Maya Angelou:
- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
- Gather Together in My Name
- Singin' and Swingin' and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas
- The Heart of a Woman
- Maya Angelou: Poems
- I Shall Not Be Moved
- Wouldn't Take Nothing For My Journey Now
Maya Angelou's voice feels real and honest, and her stories hold my attention. I'll definitely look for more of her books.
I've a new book to begin, which is actually an old book that I loved as a child, Amy Moves In, by Marilyn Sachs. I wonder if I'll still find it as appealing as I did as a youngster, and if my daughter will enjoy reading it?
