Book Talk: The House on Mango Street by


Great coming-of-age novel about a Latina who moves into a house on Mango Street (not her dream house or dream neighborhood) written as vignettes. Through these, you get a sense of who the main character is and a feeling of what goes on in the ‘hood. I particularly liked that each chapter has a title, instead of just a number. It was definitely short and sweet.
