Audiobook narrated by author, Sandra Cisneros

It appears that before today I had only read a few of the vignettes presented in this text during my public school years. First, I noticed that every teacher(including me) that does any part of this book in their ELA classroom pronounces Mango incorrectly. It's supposed to be "Mawn-Go" not "Mang- Go." I wonder if my grade eight English teacher knows... Second, I had never heard Sandra Cisneros speak before, she certainly has a very youthful voice. Quite frankly, this works as her character, Esperanza, is quite young.

Although I feel that it's a "nice" story and certainly introduces a voice in the literary world that until its publication was non-existent, I just think it was an okay read.
