I think that Cisneros is trying to make the book accessible to everyone so that the message of the book isn't interpreted as being only relevant to the Latino community.

in case u didn't notice it the main character is latin and facing problems in her chicano neighborhood if she wanted to make it sound interesting and real she would have to add spanish which made the book better and more personable
