The House on Mango Street

—3.5—

Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street is a series of short vignettes about Esperanza, a child growing up in a Spanish-speaking portion of Chicago. Characters such as her family, friends, boys, and neighbors each play a role in the short chapters, as Esperanza dreams of when she can leave Mango Street and live in the house of her dreams. The House on Mango Street is a short read, and the vignette style is appropriate for the thoughts of Esperanza; it gives them an almost musical quality.

3.5/5
