    DescriptionIn his first book for young adults, bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist who leaves his school on the Spokane Indian Reservation to attend an all-white high school. This heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written tale, coupled with poignant drawings that reflect the character's art, is based on the author's own experience and chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he seems destined to live. It is illustrated in a contemporary cartoon style by Ellen Forney.

    Review quote
    "A gem of a book ... may be Sherman Alexie's best work yet" New York Times "It's humane, authentic and, most of all, it speaks" Guardian "A remarkable tale that is sure to resonate and lift spirits of all ages to come" USA Today "Emotionally spring-loaded, linguistically gymnastic and devastatingly funny" San Francisco Bay Guardian "A coming-of-age story so well observed that its very rootedness in one specific culture is also what lends its universality" -- starred review Publishers Weekly
