Book Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

This book rocks so hard. Junior, a modern Native American teen from the Spokane Indian Reservation, is the charming narrator of this terrific fictional diary, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by award-winning author, Sherman Alexie.

Junior aspires to be a cartoonist and tells his unique, hilarious, and heart-wrenching story in humorous, original narrative accompanied by drawings and other graphics. The reader follows Junior as he leaves school on the reservation to attend a white high school, and his experience as an outcast in both worlds he straddles. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time, and a novel I count among my favorites.
