The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros

This book told the story of Esperanza Cordero through her voice in a series of vignettes and poems. Each story crafts a new side of her, her goals, dreams, family, life. Growing up a Latina girl in Chicago isn't easy.
I adored this book. Each story was written so beautifully, and each story was a gem in itself. They stories were heartbreaking, joyous, and told her angst so well. Must read for those who love vignettes and for those who haven't experienced them.

5 Stars
