2007/10/1-Esperanza Rising

  • what happened  ->    Esperanza’s mom was very sick because of the dust wind, so she did not even leave her alone. She was very afraid to lose her mom like her dad. Her mom was laying down and she told Esperanza to crochet. Therefore, Esperanza took the crochet and did it carefully. The crochet was for Abuelita who was the servant. Esperanza was showing the tears while her mom was sleeping and thought that she and her mom need Abuelita. One day, the doctor came to house and checked her mom out. He said Esperanza’s mom’s health was getting worse so she has to go to the hospitol. And the doctor said the reason why she was getting worse was the huge stress and depressing. She was so afraid but there was no choice. After her mom left, Hortensia came, and Esperanza went to him and asked him why is her mom depressed. He said that mom had a hard time like losing money and daddy but she is trying to look okay for Esperanza. Esperanza thought she has to be stronger at that time and thought about the decision. She had an idea to make Abuelita to come as soon as possible. However, she could not send a mail to her because her cousin will know that Esperanza is in the United States. Therefore, she went to the beside of the house and prayed with the tears. If she is going to take Abuelita, she needs money. Therefore, she told Hortensia that she will work and he told her to try the cutting potato eyes. She agreed. She decided to work hard as possible as she can for her mom.
  • what will happen next?  ->I think Abuelita will be able to come and her mom will be cured with the happiness. And everybody will become happy.
  • how did you feel about the parts you have just read? ->I felt very sorry for Esperanza for all of the unfortunate happenings and I hope everything will be better as soon as possible. Also I hope the doctors will take care of her mom a lot.
  • if there is anything to change, how would you change it?  -> I would make daddy to come back to Esparenza’s family as a surprise.
  • might want to ask the writer or the characters in the story?  ->I want to ask Esperanza’s father how did he feel like when he left the world.
