The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros

This book is a collection of short stories about a Latino girl growing up in Chicago.  Each story is short and easy to read, which makes the book flow quickly.

Her childhood stories are vastly different from mine.  However, many of the fears and anxieties that surround growing up into adulthood resonated with me.

Also, I understood the writers desire to be different from those around her.  I too wanted to follow my own path and live my own life.  I never wanted to live the life other people thought I should live.  In fact, that is something that has never changed about me.

The book is interesting and relatable.  I recommend giving it a chance.
