Acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, The House on Mango Street is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero. Told in a series of vignettes – sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous – it is the story of a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become.

4.0 The House on Mango Street
This book will always remind me of my sophomore year of high school (and it's inextricably intertwined with Suzanne Vega in my head). Each vignette is very short and best read slowly.
