The House on Mango Street Chapter 20 Summary

Hips

  • The four girls debate the various uses and merits of hips.
  • The girls jump rope and "practice shaking it" so they'll know what to do with hips when they get them (20.15).
  • Rachel, Lucy and Esperanza make up songs about hips, but Nenny seems not to have caught on to their new game. The narrator says Nenny "is in a world we don't belong to anymore" (20.34).
