    Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous, The House on Mango Street tells the story of Esperanza Cordero, whose neighborhood is one of harsh realities and harsh beauty. Esperanza doesn't want to belong, not to her rundown neighborhood, and not to the low expectations the world has for her. Esperanza's story is that of a young girl coming into her power, and inventing for herself what she will become.

    Story

    I used this novel in my ESL class this year. I did several types of reading lessons with it, and for the last half of the book, students followed along to the audio book. It went really well. The book is pretty good - it's about a Mexican girl growing up in America and her hopes for her future. It isn't a traditional story telling. This book is made up of shorter stories in order - all shape Esperanza's life though.
