Book Summary Arnold, aka Junior, introduces his hardscrabble life on the Spokane Indian reservation in the first chapter called The Black-Eye-of-the-Month Club. Through his “absolutely true” diary, Arnold describes his impediments and vulnerabilities, the biggest of which is living on a reservation where he is a zero with a zero future. A pivotal conversation with a teacher spurs Arnold to make a daring life choice—to attend an all-white school miles from the reservation.

His rocky start there, riddled with stereotypes and misunderstandings, slowly develops into surprising friendships and successes in academics and basketball. Meanwhile, his family life is shattered by deaths, poverty, and alcoholism. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is based on Sherman Alexie’s own experiences growing up on the reservation. Contains mature content.
