In The House On Mango Street what stood out to me the most is the constant moving to different places that Esperanza expresses. I to moved around a lot when I was younger and have also been on the receiving end of the question --You live there? I believe the writing is at its best is when Esperanza describes her mother’s hair. The number of similes used in just this small paragraph is astonishing.
