    Born poor and hydrocephalic, Arnold Spirit survives brain surgery. But his enormous skull, lopsided eyes, profound stuttering, and frequent seizures target him for abuse on his Indian reservation. Protected by a formidable friend, the book-loving artist survives childhood. And then - convinced his future lies off the rez - the bright 14-year-old enrolls in an all-white high school 22 miles away.

    FanB14 says: "Absolutely Entertaining Memoir"
    "Honest, Heartbreaking, and Hilarious"
    Overall

    Let me start by saying that Sherman Alexie is one of my all-time favorite writers. That being said, hearing him read his own (semi-autibiographical) words elevates the experience to a whole new level. Alexie's reading in the sing-song cadence of the rez adds to the dimension to the characters. The story itself reveals the brutality and beauty that humans are capable of and gives a truly honest window into the life on the reservation as well as the experience away from it. Full of sorrow and hope and many moments of tear-jerking hilarity. I was so sad when it was over. In short, get this one now!
