Social Issues

Welcome to our little corner of the galaxy in cyber space.  It's time to set your spaceship on cruise control, sit back and take in the view.  This web page entitled "Social Issues" in The House On Mango Street, discusses such common issues in society as abuse-physical, mental, verbal,   and sexual (such as rape), as well as immigration, friendships, etc.  You, as the reader, will explore the main character's ( Esperanza) perspective of the events in her life and in the lives of those around her.

And although these topics may or may not,relate to you or someone you know, we encourage you to please continue to read on.  So feel free to kick up your heels, relax, and hold on to your mouse button.  And of course, enjoy!
