The Absolutely True Diary of A Part-time Indian gives a new perspective on Native Americans and their lives. A 14 year old native teen named Arnold is its hilarious narrator who walks the story through his journey at the reserve, and moving to a “white” town. At some points this book does include mature language, and some may be offended by the words “Indian” and “white” used but overall it gives a whole new perspective of the difficult lives of Native Americans. The story quickly plays with your emotions because it is constantly jumping from sad themes, then to humour, and then some more sadness. To summarize, The Absolutely True Diary of A Part-time Indian is an eye-opening book that is hilarious and a fun read! 4/5
