The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Alexie's first teen novel is honest, heartbreaking and hilarious--everything you would expect. In this autobiographical novel, Junior is an aspiring cartoonist who dreams big, and does what few other Indians do--he leaves the rez to make sure that his dreams become reality. Seattle artist Ellen Forney's illustrations are perfect. Destined to become a teen classic.

Yay! I was really excited about this book because it seems like a hi/lo book that teens will actually want to read. And Forney's comics are rad.
