Mango street and like it alot. I think my favorite part was where she described the house's window's as so small it looked like the house was holding it's breath. Incredibly visual writing, you can't help but see that house.
Haven't read Caramelo yet, though my SO got it as a birthday present and I keep meaning the borrow it. Read the first 20 pages one night and she really just draws you in. Writes in those short bursts. Almost little sketches but the fit together so well to paint the whole picture.
