Storyboard Text

  • I knew then I had to have a house. A real house. One I could point to. But this isn’t it. The house on Mango Street isn’t it. For the time being, Mama says. Temporary, says Papa. But I know how these things go.
  • The boys and the girls live in separate worlds. The boys in their universe and we in ours.
  • Someday I will have a best friend all my own. One I can tell my secrets to.
  • She looked out the window her whole life, the way so many women sit their sadness on an elbow.
  • Esperanza. I have inherited her name, but I don’t want to inherit her place by the window.
  • At school they say my name funny as if the syllables were made out of tin and hurt the roof of your mouth.
