This book was sad. Because he went through a lot of losses and tragedies and many kids do not go through tragedies as much as this kid does he goes through 3 times more tragedies than an average teen does.

This was a great book. I definitely recommend it. It was a hilariously, funny book, yet full of tragedy. This book is full of hardships that Junior has to overcome. His life is turned around and he was called a traitor. Though many bad things happened, some nice things happened too. It’s really realistic the way that Junior lives. Many people live in poverty and not everyone knows that, but many of them are NATIVE AMERICANS. It shines a light on how NATIVE AMERICANS live. Overall this was a great book totally recommend it.

This book was good and interesting because you don’t know what is going to happen next. Also, there is a lot of surprising and sad tragedies between Rowdy and his family and Junior and his. He faces many, many difficulties because he lives in poverty and it could be really hard for Junior. Further, in this book Junior faces loneliness and learns how to live on his own. Junior also struggles from his health issues and bullying. Overall, this book was great, funny and interesting to read. I would recommend this book to anybody that likes to read.

The book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is about a indian boy named Junior. He lives on a reservation and he’s got a few things twisted. Watch as Junior progresses through life and some friendships as the story gets more interesting as you read on. The book shows how Native Americans are treated and how Native Americans lived on the “Rez”. There are a lot of twists and turns in this book, but what can they be about? This book is really good because it always had me on my feet because there was so much going on in this book.
