Publisher's Summary

Celebrado desde su publicacion inicial como el relato clasico de una muchacha del barrio latino de Chicago, La Casa en Mango Street ha sido elogadio por los criticos, acogido por los ninos y sus padres y abuelos y estudiado por todas partes, desde escuelas primera vez en una edicion en espanol, traducido por una de las mas reconocidas figuras literarias de Mexico, La Casa en Mango Street esta a la disposicion de los miles de lectores latinos a quien este libro ha dado voz. A veces desgarrador, a veces intensamente alegre, La Casa en Mango Street relata la historia de Esperanza Cordero, en cuyo barrio conviven realidades crueles y una belleza severa. Esperanza no quiere pertenecer, ni a su barrio ni a las bajas expectativas que el mundo le ofrece. La historia de Esperanza es la de una joven intentando alcanzar su propio poder e inventar sup propio futuro.

Un libro lleno de Esperanza

The character Esperanza delightfully intrigues you with her reminisces of lives on Mango Street.
Captivating from beginning to the end.
