The born bad stood out to me. This chapter talks about the author and her friends take care of her aunt. Her aunt is blind and live in a dark apartment and she was goning to die. But the girls did not know or forget. Esperanza’s aunt was ashame and embarrassed to the children, because they always came to visit her. Her aunt said: “I will keep you free.” I think that means when she died they don’t need to visit her and take care of her anymore.
I like the discription in this chapter. Such as when Esperanza discript her aunt’s apartment she writes “She never saw the dirty dishes in the sink. She couldn’t see the ceiling dusty with flies, the ugly maroon walls, the bottles and sticky spoons.”
She does not use her situation to discript the apartment, she use her aunt’s. Esperanza in and atemp to represent the diseases as the eviel, she writes “They pick with a dizzy finger anyone, just anyone.”
