“If you’re good at it, and you love it, and it helps you navigate the rive of the world, then it can’t be wrong.”

Based on Sherman Alexie’s firsthand experiences growing up as an Indigenous American, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian tells the tale of Junior, a budding teenage cartoonist with hydrocephalus – a condition that causes him to have seizures, a stutter and a lisp on top of excess spinal fluid on the brain.

Living on the Spokane Indian Reservation, Junior is bullied for his condition, and struggles with life at home. After a teacher warns him that the reservation is known for “crushing a person’s spirit,” Junior decides to transfer to Rearden High School. The catch? The town of Rearden is all-white, and the only other Indian around is the school mascot.

A heartbreakingly beautiful story of what it means to find your place in the world, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is a powerful read from start to finish. With a forward by Markus Zusak, interviews with author Sherman Alexie and illustrator Ellen Forney, this paperback edition is exactly what readers like YOU are looking to purchase in bulk.
