The house on Mango Street is small and red with tight steps in front.
For now, we only have one bedroom and one bathroom.
One day we'd move into a real house with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms.
There were six of us. Mama, Papa, Carlos, Nenny, Kiki, and me, Esperanza
I am the great grand cousin of the queen of France.
I'll be your friend, but only until next Tuesday. That's when we move away. The neighborhood is getting bad.
My dad's going to fly me to France one day and find my great grand cousin and inherit the family house. Until then we have to keep moving a little farther north every time people like you keep moving in.
