Arthur Spirit (a.k.a. Junior) is a 14-year-old aspiring cartoonist living on the Spokane Indian Reservation in northeastern Washington. Despite being surrounded by family, friends, and a tight community, Junior has never quite fit in on the reservation, mostly due to the variety of medical conditions he has as a result of infant hydrocephalus. At the urging of one of his teachers, Junior transfers from the reservation high school to an all-white high school in a nearby farm town. Most of the residents of the reservation see this as a traitorous act, and Junior is shunned by all but his closest family. He sees himself as split between two worlds, never completely at home on the reservation or with his new white friends. Even while dealing with such heavy subjects as poverty, racism, alcoholism, and death, Junior’s brutally honest narration and witty sense of humor bring a light to the story. Junior never shies away from the truth, but he confronts it full of hope and a determination to rise above his circumstances. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian offers a unique look at Indian life as it tells the story of one boy’s attempt to bridge two worlds and find his place. It is beautifully-written, filled with moments that are at once heartbreaking and hilarious. ( )

Junior is a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian reservation. Born with a variety of medical problems, he is picked on by everyone but his best friend. Determined to receive a good education, Junior leaves the rez to attend an all-white school in the neighboring farm town where the only other Indian is the school mascot. Despite being condemned as a traitor to his people and enduring great tragedies, Junior attacks life with wit and humor and discovers a strength inside of himself that he never know existed.

Trigger Warnings: Alcoholism, Death, Slurs (homophobic/racist/r-word)

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian follows Spokane Indian, Junior/Arnold, a budding cartoonist who is determined to take his life in his own hands and not end up getting sucked in a stuck at his Reservation. So, Junior transfers from his troubled, low funded school on the rez to an all-white, farm town high school. Now, everyone on the rez looks at Junior as a traitor who abandoned his people, and everyone at his new school act as if they're afraid of him. Written based on the author's own experiences and paired with drawings by Ellen Forney, this novel shows the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from a life full of heartbreak and grief.

This is another book my boyfriend recommended that I read and so, of course, I very well enjoyed it. My best friend in middle school was Native American and I remember some of the issues and concerns that Junior brings up were subjects she mentioned as well (alcoholism being one I remember the most).

I liked the voice of Junior. Sometimes he was a bit cringey, but he was a teenage boy so I almost kind of expected it. He was honest and brought to light a few things that I know many people don't like to think a young teenager is going to think about, yet alone write/talk about it, so I can see why it gets challenged or banned a lot. But it happens! Young folks have to grow up a lot faster than most people like to think they do. Junior was one of them. He brought up a lot of points about Native Americans that many people don't know, and honestly, probably don't want to think about - mainly because they don't want to look at the privileges they might have. At one point of the story, Junior brings up the amount of funerals he's gone to in his lifetime and compares it to those his white friends have gone to. It's an eye opener for sure!

This book deals with a lot! Some dark and serious subjects are told but they all had just a little bit of a humorous touch (usually a cartoon) that it balanced the mood a bit without taking away from the grave scene.

I feel like it's definitely meant for the older teen audience, but that's not to say a younger teen couldn't read it, there would probably just need to be a discussion during or afterwards about it. ( )

I wanted to leave an honest, unbiased review for what it’s worth.
From a literature perspective, it was great. I couldn’t put it down honestly. It was easy reading and I felt like I was actually following this kid around like a fly in the room. I thought it was really great. Maybe a bit inappropriate for kids before high school age, but mostly because the narrator is in high school, and he talks about things that kids that age do.
From a cultural perspective, it was pretty enlightening. Even though I lived in tollhouse my whole life, I had never set foot on a reservation until a couple years ago when I lived in your moms old house and made friends with someone who lived there (the reservation). I gave him a ride home a couple times and that was about my entire experience with it. (But it’s not like it’s a place where you would say, hey, I want to go explore the Rez today)… I think from a white persons standpoint, if you don’t have native friends that live there, you don’t go there and you don’t know much about it. I know people keep saying things like, “educate yourself”, which I do agree with, but I also think in order to have a desire to educate oneself, there should be a reason that they feel they need to do it. I think books like this plant a seed that sparks a bit of curiosity, and encourages people to want to know more. I feel like sometimes we expect each other to be interested in things that we ourselves feel are a big deal, but they aren’t as important to others because they aren’t personally impacted by those things. I think In the classroom, this story could strike up some pretty intense conversations that would encourage some students to want to know more and get involved, or simply educate others that just don’t know.
So, overall, I hope you keep trying to get this book and others like it introduced into the school district. I don’t know what age range you were going towards, but if it’s an issue with age-appropriateness, maybe try at the high school level. If schools want to promote gay pride and transsexualism, they shouldn’t have an issue promoting a culturally educative book about a boy who has a normal teenage relationship with himself… if you know what I mean.
Good luck and keep fighting for what you believe in! ( )

Working in the voice of a 14-year-old forces Alexie to strip everything down to action and emotion, so that reading becomes more like listening to your smart, funny best friend recount his day while waiting after school for a ride home.

"No, I'm serious. I always knew you were going to leave. I always knew you were going to leave us behind and travel the world. I had this dream about you a few months ago. You were standing on the Great Wall of China. You looked happy. And I was happy for you."
During one week when I was little, Dad got stopped three times for DWI: Driving While Indian.
“Son,” Mr. P. said. “You’re going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation.”
I'd always been the lowest Indian on the reservation totem pole-- I wasn't expected to be good so I wasn't. But in Reardan, my coach and the other players wanted me to be good. They needed me to be good. They expected me to be good. And so I became good.
"I used to think the world was broken down by tribes," I said. "By black and white. By Indian and white. But I know that isn't true. The world is only broken into two tribes. The people who are assholes and the people who are not."
