The House on Mango Street (by Sandra Cisneros)

Suggested by Sony as a potential text for my class next year, and currently the front runner. (It fits all the criteria I had for the book and also meshes very nicely with my nonfiction choice.) It's an incredibly quick read (probably took me about an hour), and is deceptively simple and easy to understand, yet it's layered, poetic, relatable... perfect. I'm already excited about teaching it.

I am kind of tempted to write an erudite analysis of it here, just to see if any students next year Google the book title and then plagiarize my post. Irony!
