Annotation:
Fantastically written, humorous, and deeply moving, Sherman Alexie's autobiographical first foray into the young adult fiction world follows Junior, a 14-year-old Indian whose vast physical problems and grinding poverty are outweighed by his incredible talent and refreshing, honest views on just about everything. Born and raised on the Spokane Indian Reservation, Junior loves to draw cartoons and is the smartest kid in his rotten reservation school. But when he's presented with an opportunity that promises to blow the lid off his life, Junior sees a hopeful future for the first time. With excellent, perfectly pitched B&W illustrations by cartoonist Ellen Forney, this is the winner of the 2007 National Book Award in the Young People's Literature category.

Praise

"The line between dramatic monologue, verse novel, and standup comedy gets unequivocally--and hilariously and triumphantly--bent in this novel about coming of age on the rez." 9/1/2007

"The many characters, on and off the rez, with whom he has dealings are portrayed with compassion and verve, particularly the adults in his extended family. Forney's simple pencil cartoons fit perfectly within the story and reflect the burgeoning artist within Junior." 9/1/2007

"Alexie nimbly blends sharp wit with unapologetic emotion...." 7/15/2007
