The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

This book is hilarious! I found myself holding my side with laughter. Sherman Alexie writes with conviction and clarity regarding the life of the modern reservation Indian. I learned so much about reservation life through the eyes of a goofy brain-damaged outcast named Arthur. He strikes out into the white world to attend school, in order to receive a better education, yet what he discovers about himself and his tribe is sure to change his life forever. This story is heart-warming to say the least and is full of wonderful adventures that will leave you both happy and sad. Great book!
