    An award-winning author, poet, and filmmaker, Sherman Alexie was named one of Granta's Best Young American Novelists and has been lauded by The Boston Globe as "an important voice in American literature." Sherman Alexie is one of the most well known and beloved literary writers of his generation. His five works of fiction have received numerous awards and citations, including the PEN/Malamud Award for Fiction and the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Award, and have been translated into eleven languages.
    Bestselling 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.

      Hilarious, sensitive, informative winner of the 2007 National Book Award for young adults .I would recommend this for age 14 and above..Personally, I think this is a better book than Catcher in the Rye (!!!!) but school librarians may have some of the same complaints..very moving, and as i said, hilarious..word pictures galore!! It's wonderful addition to your Sherman Alexie library..
