The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros

Lesson Plans by Becky Harvey

The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros is not the traditional novel, but a collection of short pieces, all written from the view of Esperanza, a young Hispanic girl. Over the course of the book, as Esperanza grows, she describes the people who come in and out of her life on Mango Street. Esperanza uses her writing to try and escape the life she feels destined to live, and by the end, it seems Esperanza has hope that things will change for her. She even indicates that one day she might return to Mango Street to help change the street and its people.
