Journal 3 by Bryant Shreve

Cisneros, Response
      My personal favorite chapter from The House on Mango Street is " Louie, His cousin and His Other Cousin". This is my favorite chapter because Louie stole the car and everyone else in the chapter had no clue.
      The theme of the story is youth and being clueless. At the end of the chapter it says " They put handcuffs on him and put him in the back of a cop car, and we all waved as they drove away". This shows that they don't know what is going on and to young to understand that he got in trouble.
      I believe the writing is at its best when the seats and the car are being described. A great quote from the book would be " The seats were big and soft like a sofa, and there were little white cat in the back window whose eyes lit up when the car stopped and turned".
Role Model Response
        One of the biggest influences on me in my life would have to be my best friend Aaron. Aaron always influenced me to do my best and to be a good person. Growing up Aaron would always stand up for kids being bullied and would always be kind to others. Being around him was like breathing in fresh air if you were down because he was positive and saw the best of every situation. Aaron influenced my behavior by being kind and respectful to people and seeing light in most things.


  1. We did the same story and I agree 100%

  2. I can easily imagine the large seats in the car. Cisneros really knows how to describe things. The world needs more Aarons.

  3. I also liked this chapter and agree that Cisneros did a great job describing the car.
