It's sad that even now, someone like me born so many years later, can totally identify with Maya growing up as a black female. Still hoping for the best, preparing for the worst so that nothing surprises us.

Maya Angelou writes with a precision like no other - such an honest and inspirational author. I was brought to tears of joy and sorrow on so many occasions and transported to her world and her childhood through her avid and beautiful descriptions of a life well-lived despite all its hardships.

I enjoyed the book, which arrived quickly and well-packaged, but it certainly made me think. Some of the racist details were horrific. Not a 'fun' read but very worthwhile.

Reminiscent of the atmosphere set in Kill a Mockingbird. An excellent read.

Interesting true life account of Maya Angelou's troubled upbringing. The author holds your attention throughout with an almost unbreakable resilience.
