“I love this book and author, due to the fact I find her very inspirational. In this book holds the key to my strength not Phenomenal Woman, which I find an amazing poem, and one of my favourites. And Still I rise, is an amazing example, of how life goes on. I am held, back, I struggle and still I continue, and this should be the motto for each and every woman out there, AND STILL I RISE”

“Angelou’s use of language was simple yet powerful, and also nothing short of beautiful, yet not too flowery. The themes in the book were relatable – love, heartbreak, finding a place, subjugation. I have no words, I loved it.”

– Angelin, via GoodReads
