    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"
    "Will lift your Great Spirits!"
    Overall

    I selected this book before reading any reviews; I was curious about the title and found it kept getting my attention.

    Alexie is a gifted word picturer. He had me totally on the res and feeling the emotions that he was relating. I'm not from the rez - just a little white boy who somehow grew up in similar surroundings and felt that this was a little bit of my story. I laughed and cried so much that I had to keep listening until the end. A must for your library. An easy but great listen.
