Only Daughter by Sandra Cisneros is the story of a young Mexican-American girl growing up in the 1950s. She is the only daughter in a family of six children and feels like an outsider in her own home. Her father is a strict disciplinarian and her mother is a submissive housewife. The girl longs for her father’s approval and love, but feels like she can never please him. When she is old enough, she leaves home to attend university in Texas. There, she finally feels like she belongs and finds her true identity. The book is a coming-of-age story about a young woman’s search for her place in the world.
