Fight On!

I couldn’t be more behind Junior as he fights his way off the reservation to a better life in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. If there’s one book you pick up, pick up the National Book Award winner. Between the illustrations and dark humor, it was right up my alley anyway, but then there’s were the endearing qualities of moving on and pushing through that definitely should push other kids to want a better life for themselves, just like Junior. Three words: pick it up!

    It sounds like you’ve got a great girl, but I don’t really think that this is appropriate for a 10 year old. I think there’s a certain maturity to what Junior tries to detail in his fight to leave the desperation of the reservation. So, no I don’t think it would be appropriate, unless you were there to discuss many of the important issues that Alexie brings up.
