- Describe the cabin where Esperanza must live in America. How does this home compare to her home in Mexico? When Esperanza points out these differences, why does Mama become angry with her? Is Mama right to be angry with her? Why or why not?

Everyone arrives at the camp and Esperanza sees her new home for the first time. She is horrified - the cabin is more humble than the servants’ quarters at el Rancho de las Rosas. Additionally, Esperanza and Mama will be sharing the tiny space with Hortensia, Alfonso, and Isabel. When Mama expresses her gratitude for the cabin, Esperanza becomes frustrated. Mama explains patiently that what matters is that they are together and far away from Tío Luis.
