On Saturday, I picked up The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian and couldn't put it down.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian is about Junior, a cartoonist who lives on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Junior leaves his old school to go to a primarily white but academically solid school, and gets ridiculed by his former friends and new acquaintances. Junior has to discover who he is, who he wants to be, and how to merge the two together.
I really enjoyed this book. My adopted aunt is Native American and she always gives me these amazing presents about her culture, so I was really intrigued with this book because of her. Junior is witty and sarcastic and likable. The writing was hilarious at the worst of times, and when it ended I didn't want it to.
