A great and fast read. The one thing I love about Sherman Alexie is that every word on the page is purposeful (take that, Stephenie Meyer) I'm so glad he wrote something for YAs that will take them to a world here in our country that many don't even know exists. While I found a few social happenings a bit unbelievable, the character felt real and his pain and joy rang true. Great story, great writing. Deserves the National Book Award it has already garnered and deserves some Printz action, which will hopefully happen on Monday!
