Esperanza Rising By Pam Munoz Ryan

The story is narrated by Trini Alvarado whose voice makes us delve into the rich culture of Mexico in which the main character finds herself after the reversal of her fortune. At the start, the presentation of the luxury life that Esperanza was living makes us more sentimental about her when we observe her downfall because of a certain calamity. Her appearance from top to toe changes which are quite wonderfully depicted and also her realization that now she has to work for her family instead of making herself ready to become a Ma’m.

The adaptation of the change by the youth makes us praise the main character. The story has a lot of things common with Our California which includes the scene of the poor tents and also the culture and the lower class. Esperanza is like the boy in the story ‘Echo” who has lost her way. In her case, the way means the way to glory or the crown which was rightfully hers. She struggling as there is no other way of survival anymore for the young and arrogant girl. The story also very brilliantly describes the way of living and thinking of the two classes.

The main character very nicely fits herself in both in order to make her molding nature that improves as the story progresses. The story and the characters are quite excellently presented throughout the whole tale. Also, the village background also makes us remember the house of our own grandparents as well, the past that we commonly share. Other similar stories by the Pam Munoz Ryan include the Dreamer and Becoming Naomi Leon worth reading as having some similar story effects in them.
