Alexie nimbly blends sharp wit with unapologetic emotion in his first foray into young-adult literature.

Fourteen-year-old Junior is a cartoonist and bookworm with a violent but protective best friend Rowdy. Soon after they start freshman year, Junior boldly transfers from a school on the Spokane reservation to one in a tiny white town 22 miles away. Despite his parents’ frequent lack of gas money (they’re a “poor-ass family”), racism at school and many crushing deaths at home, he manages the year. Rowdy rejects him, feeling betrayed, and their competing basketball teams take on mammoth symbolic proportions. The reservation’s poverty and desolate alcoholism offer early mortality and broken dreams, but Junior’s knowledge that he must leave is rooted in love and respect for his family and the Spokane tribe. He also realizes how many other tribes he has, from “the tribe of boys who really miss . . . their best friends” to “the tribe of tortilla chips-and-salsa lovers.”

Junior’s keen cartoons sprinkle the pages as his fluid narration deftly mingles raw feeling with funny, sardonic insight. (Fiction. YA)

A fine book! So glad it’s on many high school reading lists. I saw the author speak a few months ago so I felt like I was hearing his voice as I was reading. ( )

This has been on my to-read list for a while, and I'm glad I finally got to it. I liked Arnold Spirit's voice a lot, although at first I wasn't sure what made this worthy of multiple awards. Seemed pretty straightforward to me. As I got further into the book, and Arnold's conflict with loyalty and belonging became more complicated, I started to see what was special about this book. There were some wonderful turns of phrase as the book progressed. I especially liked what he said to his teacher about there only really being two tribes in the world.

A good read. I plan to check out more of Alexie's work. ( )

I love the way Alexis writes. Wasn’t thrilled with the narrative voice, but it was pretty effective given the subjects - racism, alcoholism, suicide, racial tensions. ( )

Hilarious and also very emotional at times. Junior was a warrior dealing with not only racism, being poor, bullying and feeling obligated to his community, but also the effects & consequences of the deadliest drug in the US.

I am glad he eventually was able to get out of the Black-Eye-of-the-Month Club.

"So I draw because I want to talk to the world. And I want the world to pay attention to me. I feel important with a pen in my hand. I feel like I might grow up to be somebody important. An artist. Maybe a famous artist. Maybe a rich artist." Arnold Spirit Jr. ( )

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.

I was born with water on the brain. Okay, so that's not exactly true. I was actually born with too much cerebral spinal fluid inside my skull. But cerebral spinal fluid is just the doctors' fancy way of saying brain grease.

"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."
