The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros

by nanc21

One of the writing turors in the writing center at the university I go to suggested this book to me. It is just such a great book. I recomend it to EVERYONE.

This is a poem from the book that I loved....

I want to be

like the waves on the sea,

like the clouds on the wind, but I'm me.

One day I'll jump

out of my skin.

I'll shake the sky like a hundred violins.

My english teacher, Mr. Sam Cisnernos is related to her.

It is most unlikely. But - here comes the big "but" - not impossible.
