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

    By Gaben Nule
    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.

    None of it makes sense it’s just non sense spewed from a child. I hated every second of this book.

    This book is just constant sadness and nothing gets better. Lazy authors write like this just to get good ratings
  • Great

    By Alexis Rose Marie
    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.😱😊😂
  • This book is so misunderstood by many

    By Waam
    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!!!
