THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET, by Sandra Cisneros
Told in a series of vignettes stunning for their eloquence, THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET is Sandra Cisneros's greatly admired novel of a young girl growing up in the Latino section of Chicago. Acclaimed by critics, beloved by children, their parents and grandparents, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, it has entered the canon of coming-of-age classics.
