NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A coming-of-age classic, acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught in schools and universities alike, and translated around the world—from the winner of the 2019 PEN/Nabokov Award for Achievement in International Literature.
The House on Mango Street is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero, a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become. Told in a series of vignettes-sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous-Sandra Cisneros' masterpiece is a classic story of childhood and self-discovery. Few other books in our time have touched so many readers.
“Cisneros draws on her rich [Latino] heritage ... and seduces with precise, spare prose, creat[ing] unforgettable characters we want to lift off the page. She is not only a gifted writer, but an absolutely essential one.” —The New York Times Book Review
I love this book. This is the second time that I read it because of the great memories that come to my mind. As a Latin woman, the Three Sisters is one of my favorite chapters because it is very sincere. I feel that many people may be identified with Esperanza, especially those who had been raised in a poor neighborhood or suffered discrimination because of its social and/or economic disadvantages. We must never forget where we come from!45
I bought this book over a month ago and just started reading this week and have already finished it. Each chapter has about two pages, maybe three at the most. These compositions of short stories cover topics such as domestic violence, gentrification, prejudice, sexual assault, etc.55

A great book but very hard to follow at times. I did overall enjoy the book35
Terrible just talks about a girl who wants a new house because the one she got isn’t good enough she should be grateful.45
I would’ve given it 0 stars if I could. Just random uninteresting stories. Also if you get the audiobook the authors voice is really annoying sounds like a little kid rambling, no wonder she wrote this piece of trash. I only finished this book because my school made me. Absolute trash don’t waste anytime with this book.15
This book kinda blows15
None of it makes sense it’s just non sense spewed from a child. I hated every second of this book.15
This book was terrible. Had no point, very idiotic chapters, I didn’t not like it, nor do I recommend it!!15
