Check out Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. #BookLoversDay

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, first published in 2007 by Little, Brown, is among my favorite books. Lots of readers know about the novel because it has won many awards including the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature and the American Indian Youth Literature Award for Young Adults. It’s a great read – one that makes you laugh and cry along with Junior as he makes his way in a new school and at home on the reservation. But it continues to show up on lists of banned books. Read it and see what you think – I join many others in loving it.
