The claim/thesis that I have picked is that Esperanza has a variety of female role models in her life. Many of those role models in her life are in a trapped abusive life. They come from a poor family and are not the cleanest people in the town. But they have something all in common and that is that they all want a change. Some want their change in a different way than the others, some want someone else to change their life, and the others want to change their lives themselves. For Esperanza she comes from a poor family and lives in a house that in her opinion is old and ugly and worn down. She is unsure what she wants someone else to change her life or if she wants to change her life by herself. My opinion of how someone should change their life is by the person who wants the change it. If you need someone to change something that you are capable of doing. It is better to change what you want immediately so that people can progress onward from where you ended, even if it is a marriage.
Some may argue that her neighborhood is a more important aspect of Esperanza’s identity than her poverty. They may assert that because the people in her neighborhood are the ones she can relate to the most. However, her poverty is what she has to live with and her actions will help her cope with what is to come in the future and the present. From wanting a better house, to striving to become a writer, and looking up to her hard working dad who isn't but different from her. These three reasons are what prove that Esperanza's identity as ambitious is shaped by her

This book was Pam Muñoz Ryan 's 13th book ever published out of 40. In the book, Esperanza Rising, it
Esperanza and her mother made the choice to leave Mexico and go to California to work, and escape Tio Luis, which I believe to be a good decision. Before going, Esperanza was spoiled, rich, and quite full of herself, living in a high social class family, and in general thought of herself better than others. At first, she was against leaving everything she knew and loved, but in the end, found herself liking California. Esperanza made new friends, in particular, Isabel, who taught her many things, even though she was younger. She taught her how to appreciate what she had, and how to get a job done.
The author's attitude towards the boys in this novel is ignorant and emotional. This novel is composed of vignettes that show Esperanza learn about the true power of language and the struggle for self- definition. While befriending Sally, she learns more about boys and matures sexually. During the year, Esperanza develops her first crush and even endures sexual assault. From this, her first impression and ignorance over the topic of boys and having the thought process that girls and boys live in different worlds, awakens Esperanza and teaches her an important lesson and becomes to an eyeopening experience.
Esperanza ends up realizing the positive things she has and blocks out the negative. Overall, Esperanza struggles throughout this time in her life but continues to persevere through them with trust and
“I could’ve been somebody, you know? My mother says and sighs. She has lived in this city her whole life. She can speak two languages. She can sing an opera. She knows how to fix a T.V.” (Cisneros). In the vignette, “A Smart Cookie” by Sandra Cisneros, it states how the mother of a girl named Esperanza regrets not going to school and not becoming the person she wanted to be. Esperanza’s mother complains about not having done something with her life. The mother seemed disgusted with her younger self and told Esperanza not to be like her.
She had to go through the death of her dad, the fire, the threats, moving to America. If I was in her place, I wouldn’t have known what to do, I would’ve been miserable for days, but she stayed strong and did her best. She became stronger and stronger as the story went on, as the problems got worse. It was such a tragedy when Esperanza’s mom became sick. Esperanza was really mournful, but she managed to get it together and help as much as she could. She started helping around the house, but when she figured out that it wasn’t much, she got a job at the fields and even though she had no experience in it she still went ahead and did it. “Mama had been strong for her. Now it was her turn to be strong for Mama. She must show her that she didn’t need to worry anymore.”(p163) Based on this quote, I can tell that she knew she had to be strong and her Mom’s sickness didn’t make her more sad than she already was, it motivated her to be strong for her mom and whatever was coming up. She wanted to repay it to her mom for always being there and helping her in whatever she was going through. Esperanza became more and more stronger as she faced more and more problems. She was a scared girl who used to be afraid, but now she’s a lot braver. All these incidents gave her a message, that she was stronger than she knew she was. “Don’t worry Mama. Remember, I will take care of everything. I am

11) The title of my book is Crash. This is a good title because it captures the overall feeling of the story. The main character suffers through a traumatic vision that eventually is all she can think about. The vision ends up taking over her life, causing her to “crash” or shut down. She is unable to make the vision go away, which causes her to act out of the ordinary, so her friends and family begin to worry. Crash is a very fitting title for this story, because it represents the emotional and physical toll the vision has on the main character.
