I don't usually read YA books. They just aren't my thing. But, I do love Sherman Alexie, so I decided to try his book Flight. While his book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian was thoroughly enjoyable, I found Flight to be a bit more pedantic and not quite as realistic. I think it might be for a slightly younger audience than I thought, but it was definitely a bit more trite than I was expecting, especially since many of the reviews I've read of it called it gritty or dark. It wasn't a bad book, and it was definitely better than many YA books I've read, but I would restrict it to the intended audience rather than recommend it for people my age.
Rating: 3 stars

Accessible writing, slightly trite and pedantic, intended for a younger audience.
