The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Alexie won the National Book Award for Young Adult Fiction for this book last week. Based on his own childhood "on the rez", this "true" story rang in my ears in Alexie's own voice since we just heard him speak at KSU last week and went again to hear him at the Cleveland Public Library on Sunday. I read the book in one day. It is worthy of the award.
