The House on Mango Street
Average rating

Great read!
May 23rd, 2013
Lovely, lovely read about the dualities of life. Of being Mexican and American all at once, of being a girl and a young woman, of wanting to go far far away and wanting to come back. Loved it. Easy to read in that the stories are short, hard in that some of em truly hurt. I would definitely read again.
