    Description

    Best-selling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.

    Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by Ellen Forney that reflect the character's art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.

    With a forward by Markus Zusak, interviews with Sherman Alexie and Ellen Forney, and four-color interior art throughout, this edition is perfect for fans and collectors alike.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Beautiful novel - but wait and think before extra content

    Wait a little to think before listening to the extra content. Didn’t have enough time to fully form my own opinions.

    great story and characters are super appealing

    this book was recommended to me by my 7th grade ELA teacher and I gave this book a chance, i love it because this book not only sheds light on the poverty and how modern day Indians are looked at with a side eye and are in poverty, and just to add to how appealing it is to teens like me it has some teenage humor as well as unpredictable characters. i recommend this book to any teen who love books based on humor and plot

    If haven't read this, do it soon.

    This is Alexis's best work. It can be classified as American Classic, American Indian Classic, and Native Youth Classic. If you have found adult children, give them this book.

    Loved this book!!

    The book was a great follow-up to Bridges Out of Poverty and a Framework for Understanding Poverty to see these theories play out in "real life" example. it's funny and entertaining and eye-opening. putting this book down with a lasting impression on my heart and mind. Didn't care too much for the interview though, it was long and kind of meh...

    A modern classic

    Such a great coming of age epic that is both so intimate and so global. Great addenda interviews, etc as well.

    Narration drove me crazy

    I’ve listened to interviews, so I’m used to Alexie’s voice and was excited to listen. It was slow and had so many vocal inflections up at the end of his sentences that it detracted from the book (which I really enjoy). Very disappointed with the reading.

    Profoundly moving and absorbing

    This book has so much to say about growing up, community and tribalism (as in, belonging or not belonging within a group), and yes, what it means to be on a reservation. Alexie performs masterfully, he does not just read. I did find the bonus material very useful and interesting and worth hearing. This is a wonderful book.

    Great book but horrible narrator

    Fantastic book with great message, but the narrator is so damned awful it nearly ruins it.

    euh

    we had to read ths book in class... it's just trying way to hard and it's so offensive. The protagonist thinks every woman/girl he encounters is super sexy, even if she is clearly bulimic and throwing up in the toilet stall next to him. The humor is dumb at best offensive and disgusting at worst. I would have burned it, if I had to keep it.
