I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings Chapter 14 Summary

  • Back in Stamps it's the same old same old.
  • Maya and Bailey become mini-celebrities, and Bailey takes up sarcasm to answer their questions about "up North."
  • After the rape, Maya can't think very well, but people don't get mad at her here. In Stamps, she is "tender-hearted" (14.26) and she feels understood—especially by Bailey.
