Review: The House on Mango Street

The House on Mango Street The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is no wonder this book is suggested for grade school students. Sandra Cisneros tells in a series of vignettes about her life and her family and friends in her inner city Chicago neighborhood. No text book could reveal as well the lives and the emotions of the under-privileged immigrant.

I'd noticed this book on bookstore tables for a long time but didn't think I would find it enjoyable or satisfying. I was wrong. The writing is poetic.
