The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian

by Sherman Alexie
£5.99   paperback  Andersen Press (2008)

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie 'Son,' Mr P said, 'you're going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation.'
 
So Junior, who is already beaten up regularly for being a skinny kid in glasses, goes to the rich white school miles away. Now he's a target there as well.
 
How he survives all this is an absolute shining must-read and a triumph of the human spirit.

"Excellent in every way, poignant and really funny and heart-warming and honest and wise and smart... I have no doubt that in a year or so it'll be winning awards and being banned."
(Neil Gaiman)
