Lucy and Rachel

Character Analysis

Esperanza meets Lucy and Rachel shortly after moving into the house on Mango Street. The sisters quickly become Esperanza's constant companions – well, sometimes Nenny tags along, too. Esperanza feels comfortable around them because they're not pretentious. Their clothes are crooked and old, and they don't laugh at her name. They come from a large family from Texas, and it's their baby sister who dies in the chapter "The Three Sisters."
