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

Monday, June 22, 2015
Why I chose this book:
I had to read this book for my YA grad class, and honestly I'm glad I did because I probably wouldn't have read it on my own. We've been really focusing on diversity in the books we read for this class, and this was one of the most perfect books to add to that list.

Synopsis:
Bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.

Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by Ellen Forney that reflects the character's art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.
