    Sherman Alexie is one of my favorites…. I saw him speak in Flagstaff AZ and he is even more humorous in person! But, his messages are real and raw and I appreciate all his books.

      I went to a YA literature gathering a couple of years ago. I remember very little about it except the enthusiasm with which people spoke of Alexie–not just his books, but him as a human being. It was with that in mind that I bought this book on my honeymoon. Having read it now, I will definitely be reading more Alexie!
