Journal Five

In The House On Mango Street, the story, “Born Bad” stood out to me the most. Esperanza and her friends were playing a game which they made fun of people they know. One day, they pretended like Esperanza’s aunt, Aunt Lupe, how she cannot move her legs or see because of the disease.
I liked how Esperanza told everything without lying about they made fun of Aunt Lupe. I kind of understand why they pretended like her because Aunt Lupe was sick all Esperanza’s life and she does not know when Aunt Lupe was a swimmer. The sickness was normal to Esperaza. Esperaza says “Most likely I will go to hell and most likely I deserve to be there” (Cisneros, 58) I can tell from this sentence how she feels really bad even she liked her aunt.

  1. I like this part too because she very like her aunt Lupe and she felt bad about her death. She don't tell lying about how her feeling about her aunt.
