    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.

    Overall

    I wish I had the skill and vocabulary to adequately describe how good this book is. Let's see, the words that come to mind are: real, surprising, gut wrenching, laugh out loud, laugh out loud hard, retard, human, awkward, thumbs, actually recognizing love, and funny....chocolate milk through the nose funny. I started this audio book at 10pm and could not go to sleep until I finished it. In three days I've downloaded and listened to The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Flight and War Dances. I love all of them but my favorite is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.

    Alexie is my new hero!

    Side note: I highly recommend buying the book in print. It is full of fantastically funny doodles and cartoons. The artwork adds a lot to the story. Brand new it runs only around $10, well worth it!
