    The House on Mango Street

    House on Mango Street was one of the few books I have actually enjoyed. The reason I enjoyed it as much was because I know someone who can definitely relate to the same situation. Just like Esperanza my friend lives in a poor neighborhood, and her hopes of towards becoming someone in life are down to the floor. So reading this novel has made me understand her way of feeling and the ability to give some advice. The theme of the novel was to stay optimistic through everything in life because the outcome will be worth it. The text was mature up easy enough to read. Life put Esperanza through many test and struggles; it was her decision that counted against her. Of course, Esperanza was a usual teen but she was very mature when I came to making some choices. At the very start of the novel Esperanza thought that living in Mango Street won't benefit her in any possible way. Throughout the novel she noticed that she couldn't really do anything about moving till she was old enough; so it was only Esperanza and her decisions she made. My friend is in the same position Esperanza was in the beginning of the story, unfortunately she has still not noticed that she has to stay positive and have lots of hope to succeed. Reading this book has made me give her lots of advice; at the moment she is reading the book and so should you.

    Read it for school

    I read this book for school, as stated above. I loved it. The best book that school has ever made us read. I love the way the book is written; you have to pay attencion to what is happening and what is going on. The messages are really well explained and clear, but not in an annnoying way.
    This book would and can be for people around 14 + because there is some topic a middle schooler shouldnt bereading and/or can grasp.
    I recomend it
    Read it!

    bleck!

    was probably the most boring book ive read in my life so far. so short, yet do many details that make no sense unless they are explained- she was RAPED in red clowns! and then there is the irony of linoleum roses, sally ending up marrying the exact same type of person she was trying to get away from... i know some people may think this book is amazing, but ive talked to over forty people eho said that this book is horrible... just not our type i guess
