    Painfully Accurate, Beautifully Written

    Opening this review by saying I've lived in Spokane, WA all my life. As a testament to my city's culture I had no idea Wellpinit existed. The place were the Spokane Indian Tribe reservation, the tribe my city is named for, and I didn't know they existed until I turned 22. I knew there was a tribe but growing up you don't hear much. Alexie writes beautifully, authentically, and it's a great story. Eye opening for anyone who may not know what life on a reservation is like. A must-read book.

    The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

    Hilarious and perfectly written from the standpoint of a 12-14 year old boy; in fact, until I got to the end and saw that the author wrote it as an adult, I really thought a 14 year old boy had actually written it. The questions at the end are also very thought provoking and I could see why this book is used in High Schools as reading material for the students. It is "eye-opening" material about life on a Reservation. I loved Rowdy as a character, and as Junior's bestie. One of the comments from the book made by Junior when talking about a baseball game says something like "I got seven strikes in that game and I was hit once by the ball. Come to think about it, that was the only hit that we got all season." I know that I am not quoting it exactly, but I started laughing out loud and then called my husband to read it to him. I was thinking 'now that's my idea of a bad day', and poor Junior had many, many bad days in this unique and very talented written and illustrated young adult book. I could just imagine how young teens would laugh when reading it too. I can also see that some parents might not like some of the 'young male' humour and attitude, but I expect that 'absolutely true' applies to that, as well. It is what it is. Well done, Sherman Alexie and well done to your talented illustrator, as well!
