First person narrator (Manny):
-> the presentation of the characters is therefore subjective and one sided
-negative, condescending because his family (parents + brothers) is different
-> because their cultural + personal identity is different
-colloquial, slang, disrespectful
-> The members of Manny´s family see themselves differently from the way Manny depicts them!
