The House on Mango Street is like a breath of fresh air. Part funny, part tragic and part hope. It’s a lovely coming of age story for a Chicana girl growing up in Chicago surrounded by messages  telling her not to succeed. Somewhat biographical it details what life is like in the barrio. I read it for the first time in Spanish and since Spanish is my second language it became clear that I missed some of the nuances when I re-read it in English. It was excellent and a quick read.  I highly recommend this book.
