What i learned from this book is how creative Sandra cisneros is. How she always breaks the grammar rule in this book. The other thing is how she always knows what to write about always being funny.The strengths of this book was her grammar. She is the most talented writer when it comes to grammatically. To me in this book did not have no weakness but it would have been better if the stories were a bit longer that would have made it more interesting, even though its already fun reading it.
The story that stood the most to me on this reading was the "Beautiful & Cruel" this story stood out the most to me because its talking about how a girl can be picky most of the times. I like this quote where it says "Nenny says she won't wait her whole life for a husband to come and get her, that Minerva's sister left her mother's house by having a baby, but she doesn't want to go that way either. She wants things all her own, to pick and choose." meaning that she doesn't want to leave the house in a bad way rather just stay than that to happen, but she seems to want things on her own. Where she can pick and choose on her own.
