  • Esperanza moves into a raggedy house on Mango Street in Chicago. It is a poor part of town, as her family does not make much money. Esperanza is lonely, even after making some friends.
  • Sure!
  • Hi! Wanna be friends?
  • Esperanza and her friends try to get into the cafeteria with the "cool" kids at lunch time but they are sent home to eat since they live too close, on Mango Street.
  • Wahhhh!
  • Look at those weirdos...
  • Esperanza and her friends buy a bike with the little money they have, and ride it around the neighborhood laughing.
  • Hahaha!
  • After biking, Esperanza stated how she felt like a red balloon tied to an anchor, restricted and wanting to leave, but she can't.

  • Many of her friends move out of Mango Street, and she hopes to one day leave as well
  • Get me out of here...
