Geraldo No Last Name in the book The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros really stood out to me because it involves death. So sudden and just comes out of the blue. She was the last one to see Geraldo alive. She asks herself why it even matters, she didn't know him “He wasn’t her boyfriend or anything” (Cisneros 66). He was just some guy at a dance. She talked about the if’s. If the surgeon was there, they might know something about the guy. Who he was, where he lived, who to tell he was dead. That is where the writing was at its best.
During my teenage years my main role model was my uncle Bruce. He is a mechanic and works on a lot of cars. He always helped me with my car. He taught me everything I know about cars. He was always willing to help me get away from feeling stressed. When i needed a break from worrying about school and what not, he would tell me to come to his shop and he would let me help him do work of some of the cars he had in there at the time. Always teaching me new things.
