Sherman Alexie: Flight A gifted and accomplished storyteller returns with a powerful and timely novel of a troubled foster teenager. Simultaneously wrenching and deeply humorous, wholly contemporary yet steeped in American history, "Flight" is irrepressible, fearless, and groundbreaking. --one of my most fav Alexie books!
The Absolutely True Diary Of A Part-time Indian, by Sherman Alexie. Quick read, with illustrations sprinkled throughout. It's about what it means to belong, and what it means to be ostracized for trying to break out. (It's a frequently banned book, which mostly just adds to its allure.)
Not only one of the best, funniest, and smartest books about the Native American experience in America, but also one of the best, funniest, and smartest books. Alexie’s interwoven shorts will improve you in almost every way.
