The House on Mango Street Chapter 19 - Chanclas
One of Esperanza's cousins has his first communion, so her large family celebrates by dressing up and dancing. Her mama initially forgets Esperanza's church shoes and later falls ill from possibly eating too many tamales. In the middle of the party, Uncle Nacho pulls Esperanza to the dance floor. The two dance and create quite a show for the rest of the partygoers.
