The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Cover


Have you ever felt that if you were someone else, even just part-time, your life would be better? You'd be better? That what Arnold "Junior" Spirit thought when he asked to transfer to a high school off of the Spokane Indian Reservation. Perhaps, just perhaps, he'd found the chance to escape from the poverty, his alcoholic relatives, his chronic illnesses, and the feeling that he'll never deserve anything better. Faced with the challenges of racial stereotypes by people at his new school and his entire tribe thinking he is a traitor. Junior will learn that the journey he needs to take to find out who he truly is meant to be (full-time), is a lot longer than the 22 mile drive off the reservation.
