Words that come to mind about this book:
Does it have some good things to offer the world? Yes. There are good messages of overcoming obstacles and chasing hope when there's none around you. It also gives a good account of what life on Alexie's reservation was like. (Don't let the title fool you; it's partly autobiographical.) People should know the hardships that Indians have encountered due to our country's poor treatment of them. I support youth learning all these lessons, but I cannot support this book because these lessons are mixed in with irreverent and profane statements about the One True God.
