Review

"[Alexie] has created an endearing teen protagonist in his own likeness and placed him in the here and now." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A Native American equivalent of "Angela's Ashes,"" -- Publishers Weekly "(starred review)"

"Breathtakingly honest, funny, profane, sad....will stay with readers." -- KLIATT "(starred review)"

"Deftly taps into the human desire to stand out while fitting in." -- BookPage

"Exceptionally good....Arnold is a wonderful character." -- Miami Herald

"Few writers are more masterful than Sherman Alexie." -- Los Angeles Times

"Fierce observations and sharp sense of humor...hilarious language." -- Newsday

"Nimbly blends sharp with unapologetic emotion....fluid narration deftly mingles raw feelings with funny, sardonic insight." -- (starred review) "Kirkus Reviews"

"Realistic and fantastical and funny and tragic-all at the same time." -- VOYA "(starred review)"

"Sure to resonate and lift spirits of all ages for years to come."

"The line between dramatic monologue, verse novel, and standup comedy gets unequivocally-and hilariously and triumphantly-bent in this novel." -- Horn Book "(starred review)"

"This is a gem of a book....may be [Sherman Alexie's] best work yet."

"What emerges most strongly is Junior's uncompromising determination to press on while leaving nothing important behind." -- BCCB "(starred review)" --This text refers to the library edition.
