Summary

The House on Mango Street Chapter 7 Summary Page 1

Laughter

  • Even though Nenny and Esperanza don't look like sisters the way Rachel and Lucy do, the narrator says that they have a lot in common. Like the way they laugh.
  • The narrator gives an example of this – one day the four girls pass a house that reminds Esperanza of Mexico, and she says so. Rachel and Lucy don't get it, but Nenny is totally on the same wavelength, and says, "That's what I was thinking exactly" (7.4).
