Esperanza's house is, red, small, tight steps, with small window, crumbling bricks,swollen door becuase in the passage it says:"It’s small and red with tight steps in front and windows so small you’d think they were holding their breath. Bricks crumbling in places, and the front door is so swollen you have to push hard to get in"(Cisneros 4).Eperanza lives at 4006 Mango StreetWho Can Be Found Here: Esperanza and her family.

At the school, Esperanza tells the nun she had a note to eat at school, yet the head nun does not like this and Esperaza cries because she doesn't want to point at her poor and ugly house.“ You don’t live far, she says. You live across the boulevard. That’s only four blocks away from the school." (Cisneros 45).Who Can Be Found Here: Esperanza , Lucy, and the Nuns.
