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

File:The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.jpg
Junior is a budding cartoonist living on the Spokane Indian reservation. He only has one friend, due to his eccentricities including his severe medical problems. Junior is determined to have a good education, so he leaves his reservation in search of a good school. He ends up going to an all-white school in the neighboring town.

I liked this book, but it really depends what you are in the mood for. It has a lot of sad concepts, and lots of people died, fought, broke friendships and broke promises. Also, it is really not the most appropriate book... at all. If you are looking for a fun, light read, don't read this book!!!! However, if you are looking for a thought-provoking, intense, depressing book, this is the one for you.

Rating: 5 out of 10
