The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (with Illustrations by Ellen Forney)

I’ll read anything Sherman Alexie writes. This, his first novel for young adults, was better than I expected it to be. Alexie writes with insight and accuracy about growing up Native American in America in all his books. In this one, he shows accurately what it’s like to be a kid. he makes his experience both unique and universal. I wish I had read this when I was 12.

Grade: B.
