Esperanza faces many new challenges at the camp. She must learn to live in and share confined spaces, wash diapers and clothing, and learn to adequately perform household chores like sweeping. These new experiences are made all the more difficult because of the teasing Esperanza endures as a result of her ignorance. Esperanza feels shame for the first time for her life of privilege.
