So we have to pick a book to read and do a report on, and it must be non-fiction. I picked "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" by Maya Angelou.
I picked this book because:
#1 it was on the list, and I knew it would fit the standards
#2 I like personal, in-depth things that people write. It helps shape my own opinion and see through someone else's eyes
#3 I knew it would be something like this just by the title, and that's what really attracted me to it
#4 I know how it feels to be oppressed
#5 Maya Angelou is one of the most refferenced authors EVER
