Main Character
  • Ramona Ortega
  • Mother of Esperanza and wife of Sixto Ortega
  • Has very long black and beautiful hair because in
    the middle of the book the author says that her
    long black hair was in a bun
  • Very strong person because she was ready to move
    on with life and face the intense labor in front
    of her
  • Sixto Ortega
  • Very generous man because he gave his part of his
    land to his servants to live in
  • Was a down-to-earth person because he was very
    realistic and sensible
  • He was very wealthy
  • Abuelita
  • Excellent at crocheting
  • Esperanzas grandmother and Ramona and Sixtos
  • Very wise because she says to Esperanza, Do not
    ever be afraid to start over. meaning that dont
    be afraid of starting your life in a whole new

  • This story mainly takes place in
    Aguascalientes, Mexico and Arvin, California
    during the Great Depression. Esperanza Ortega is
    a 12 year old girl who lives on El Rancho de las
    Rosas, her familys vineyard. Suddenly a tragedy
    strikes which causes Esperanza and her mother,
    the beautiful Ramona Ortega, to flee to
    California. Esperanza has to leave her Abuelita,
    who is her grandmother behind. Esperanza is not
    ready to handle the struggles that Mexican farm
    workers have to face like financial needs and
    hard work. Esperanza must learn to live a new
    life as a poor immigrant. She struggles to keep
    up with the work load but instantly another
    tragedy hits. What happens next? You just have to
    read the book to find out.

  • I think the author tries to teach people that
    there are many ups and downs in life, but that
    should not stop you in life. In the book
    Esperanza goes through many obstacles in her
    life, but she did not stop. Also, when you want
    to get something you have to work hard to obtain
  • Esperanza learns that life is not always the way
    you want it to be. At first she is this rich and
    happy girl, but when something causes her to move
    to California she learns that her life will not
    always be perfect. Esperanza also has to work
    very hard to gather up some money to bring her
    Abuelita back.
  • These lessons can be applied in life and around
    the world around you in many ways. One example is
    that if you get a bad grade on a test, you should
    not cry and weep about just think about how you
    could to better next time. Another example is
    that you have to work hard to get good grades and
    you have to maintain them.
