The House on Mango Street

Esperanza Cordero and her parents, sister, and brothers move into a house on Mango Street, after having lived in numerous other locations in Chicago, only some of which Esperanza remembers. At least this latest house is the Corderos’ own, but in other respects, it is not the house Esperanza would have hoped for. Esperanza meets some of her neighbors — Cathy (whose family is about to move out because the neighborhood is going downhill), Lucy and Rachel (two sisters who live across the street), a boy named Tito, another named Meme Ortiz (whose family has moved into Cathy’s house), yet another boy named Louie, Louie’s cousin Marin, and Louie’s other cousin.
