In this incredible second book in a series of autobiographies, the poet, still in her teens, gives birth to a son, tries to keep a job, falls in love, dances, falls out of love, chases after her kidnapped baby, and goes to work in a house of prostitution thinking she is helping the man she loves.


  • I love Maya Angelou

    By Kyra Santiago
    I just read "caged birds" a few months ago and I loved it, the bookstore that I purchased from recommended that I read all of her books, some people ask me if her story is "uplifting" or is sad, personally I find her books to be interesting, especially for someone to be so vulnerable to even share their life stories. I encourage my friends to read Maya's journey just to show that we can overcome anything.
