Detail your thoughts on whether the promotions that Rocio receives while working at the hospital may have served as an impetus toward paralleling her transition from a Hispanic girl living on the "down" side of her street, to a more assimilated type of life as a Hispanic female writer, and thus befitting to the book title, "The Last of the Menu Girls".
In your estimation, is it Nieves' personality or events in her past that contribute toward her tendency to tone down the celebration of Christmas at the Esquibel home? Please include textual support for the position that you select.
Having moved away years before, Rocio's father is absent throughout most of the book. When he drops by to visit Rocio, Mercy, and Nieves in the last section of the book, he voices disfavor in relation to Nieves giving his old clothes away to the poor, along with a non-romantic yet caring relationship that she has developed with Regino. Detail what Mr. Esquibel's real reason(s) for having paid a visit to the three women could have been based upon; and whether his disfavor with Nieves' decisions in relation to giving his old clothes away and her relationship with Regino can truly be justified.
