Esperanza never really liked Mango Street or her house there. Though she has friends, she never really feels like she belongs. She ages through the book, but doesn't lose her hopes of being different and less of a stereotypical weak, dependent woman. In the end, “the three sisters”, aunts of Esperanza’s neighbors, tell her that she will need to come back some day, to make a full circle of her life. In the last chapter, she asks who will change Mango Street and leaves the reader wondering if it will be Esperanza herself.
Create a storyboard that shows how Esperanza changes over the course of the book. Include her physical changes as she ages, her views about life, and how she sees the people in her life.
