I would like to get a 14 year-old girl an amazing book. Something along the lines of "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" (which I have read) but I hesitate to introduce her to some of the extremely painful events in the book at her age. Would "All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes" be a good book? I have not read this one yet. Any other Angelou books I should look at?

My grandson was given Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe to read in his English class. I read it and loved it. What are middle and high schoolers given for assigned reading these days?
