Review of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian-Alexi

I have heard about this book for years but finally decided not to wait a minute longer to read this award-winner.  Junior Spirit is both hilarious and heart-breaking, damaged in body but definitely not in spirit. Reminding me of A Catcher in the Rye, this coming-of -age tale of a young man growing up on the reservation is accompanied by humorous and sometimes poignant cartoons.  Sherman Alexie is a master at capturing the believable dialogue of a fourteen-year-old wanting a better life and bravely going after it. 4 Elves - very highly recommended for teens
