House on mango street
Amazing book. Love it.
Vignettes that will stay with you.
The book is lots of little tales told by a young girl in brief snapshots. Each is only a couple of pages long and just provides a glimpse of a character, a feeling, an event or an idea. There's no real "framework" - the author could have placed the setting years later and had the narrator recollecting - but instead each story is told almost as if the child is reflecting on moments from her day before she goes to sleep, or while she's staring out a window into her neighborhood. Not everyone "gets it" and that's okay. You might, and if you do, you'll love it.
I hate reading, this book eats doo doo
