Great Book!I had the pleasure of seeing Sherman Alexie speak at an event at the University of Massachusetts somewhere around 2009 or 2010. He is a dynamic speaker and it was so awesome to hear him speak about his life on and off the reservation. I don't know why it took me so long to read one of his books! This one is a YA but I thoroughly enjoyed it as an adult reader. Sherman has a great ability to bring you into his world and his story is an incredible one. He shows us that if you really want something bad enough, you will do what you have to to make it happen! Don't miss out on this story!
This was a fantastic novel! It is aimed toward a younger audience and I had to read it for my education course and I fully enjoyed it. You can feel what the protagonist feels which helps you become invested in the story. This book made me smile and want to cry. Alexie did a fantastic job writing and the little pictures and drawings in the book also made it more enjoyable
Sherman Alexie is a fabulously gifted writer. This collection is both humorous and serious in nature and provides an insightful gaze into the life of Native Americans on reservation. I highly recommend it to realistic fiction enthusiasts like myself.
This book is so captivating, it attracts you right away. Although there's a lot of repetition it's so interesting. I like this book a lot, and I got it at the public library. I highly recommend it honestly.
