YA Classic:


Sweet, heartbreaking, semi-autobiographical and very funny. Junior’s difficult journey from his family troubles on the rez to success and acceptance at an all white school  is beautifully rendered. There are many good reasons why this book has been on the NYT best seller list for years. What’s truly heartbreaking is that in the 9 years since publication, nothing seems to have changed for indigenous kids. Native Americans remain the most deprived group in America.

Required reading for anyone interested in YA literature or in  young adults themselves. Buy it for your kids, pupils , cousins, nephews and nieces but read it yourself first. 13+
