Maya Angelou hade ingen dotter men hon hade många kvinnor i sitt liv som hon såg som döttrar. Den här boken är för dem och för alla kvinnor och tjejer, även män. Hon skriver med sån omsorg och kärlek om livets upp och nedgångar. Om att det är okej och hur man tar sig igenom livet. Det här ger hon av sig själv och sin vishet. En fin bok för dig eller att ge någon du håller kär.

Dr Maya Angelou was one of the world's most important writers and activists. Born 4 April 1928, she lived and chronicled an extraordinary life: rising from poverty, violence and racism, she became a renowned author, poet, playwright, civil rights' activist - working with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King - and memoirist. She wrote and performed a poem, 'On the Pulse of Morning', for President Clinton on his inauguration; she was given the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama and was honoured by more than seventy universities throughout the world. She first thrilled the world with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969). This was followed by six volumes of autobiography, the seventh and final volume, Mom & Me & Mom, published in 2013. She wrote three collections of essays; many volumes of poetry, including His Day is Done, a tribute to Nelson Mandela; and two cookbooks. She had a lifetime appointment as Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University of North Carolina. Dr Angelou died on 28 May 2014.
