Throughout the book,  Maya talks about the triumphs, losses, dignity, and courage of the black community.  This book illustrates three-year-old Maya and her four-year-old brother, Bailey who moved to Arkansas (Black Neighbourhood) and lived with their grandmother. She experienced a lot of life-changing moments while living with her grandmother.   One day, all of a sudden their dead dad came into their lives and took them to their motherhouse where Maya met Mr.Freeman, her mother’s boyfriend. She got raped by him and shook her life at the age of 8 which left severe marks in her life.  Throughout the rest of the book, you can see a difference in Maya after the rape.
