I felt curious as I read this book because I really wanted to find out what would happen next. This book reminded me of myself and my life because Esperanza and I both share some of the same difficulties. This book gave me mixed emotions because there are many things that Esperanza feels. In the beginning she is happy because she has it all, she is rich. But at the end Esperanza is miserable because she doesn't have what she used to when she lived in Mexico. I found Esperanza interesting because I felt sorry for her. Her life used to be so perfect and now it is not.
I would recommend this book to kids from 3rd grade - 6th grade because it has some very hard words in it. This story might interest readers by the way the author writes. So, go get this book from the library and read it!
