    Terrible just talks about a girl who wants a new house because the one she got isn’t good enough she should be grateful.

    I would’ve given it 0 stars if I could. Just random uninteresting stories. Also if you get the audiobook the authors voice is really annoying sounds like a little kid rambling, no wonder she wrote this piece of trash. I only finished this book because my school made me. Absolute trash don’t waste anytime with this book.

    It’s a great book but I’m not sure on the purpose exactly some chapters confuse me like the poetry. I wish they’re was a explanation part of this book to see all the real things she’s talking about but I overall love this book.

    I love reading books but this book is a book I would not want to read anymore I was assigned this book for a project in school and didn’t get done with it in about 3 weeks it was confusing and regret paying 8 dollars for it I feel bad for the Arthur because he/she is trying to get a point across but they are just not getting it, I personally don’t recommend this book but if you end of reading it and liking it congrats 👏

    I was reading for my class and was assigned this book. It is interesting, but confusing at times. But the funny part is that my name is also Esperanza. Lol.😱😊😂

    Wow, this book is so misunderstood by so many people. The stories, told as mini stories opens you up to the reality of life on Mango Street from a little girls point of view. Your job is to piece it together. If you make that effort, enjoy!!!
