it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

LMAO and crying my eyes out - wow! Junior makes the wrenching decision to attend high school in the white town outside of the reservation - this entails occasionally walking the 20+ miles to get there. Alcoholism, accidental death, and poverty plague Junior and life on the reservation, plus he suffers ostracization over switching to the white school. In addition, what will happen to him at the white school, amidst a town of perceived bigots??
