Response to Sabrina:
1. I’m not too sure as to whether this is an American novel, but I once read this intriguing novel called “The House on Mango Street”, by Sandra Cisneros. I remember the novel being about a Puerto Rican family residing in an impoverished area in Chicago. The protagonist is about a young teenage girl named Esperanza, and she describes her rough life on the streets of Chicago, and how her family life has impacted her in contrast with the impact her friends had made on her while growing up her rough neighborhood. This novel was published in 1984.
