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

Inspired by his own life, Alexie's story of Junior a Spokane Indian who lives on the reservation will capture your attention from the first page on. With awesome illustrations throughout the book that make you laugh just as hard the book itself, you'll be interested to know how the story unfolds for young Junior and his friends and family.
This is the first book I've read about Native Americans and what life is like on the reservation for them. Even though it is fiction, you get a look inside the hard life that they have. This book is full of laughter, death, love and somethings that the character says make you go 'OMG! I can't believe he wrote that!" It is a great book.
Some mild language and sexual references- to me not suited for those under 14 or 15 years old.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
