Junior, a young Native American, has had a rough time in life from the time he was born. While living on the rez, a teacher approaches him with the idea that he would benefit from going to the high school in town. The new school is predominantly white, and Junior does not initially fit in. His friends at his former school feel he has betrayed them. Junior finds himself caught between the two camps. Luckily, Junior is intelligent, determined, and has a great sense of humor. Junior relates his coming-of-age story in a way that comes across as fresh and authentic. There is a lot to discuss, and it would make a great book club selection. ( )

I did not enjoy reading this book. It had too much profanity and inappropriate content. Overall it is not a book that I would recommend, read again, or use in the classroom. ( )

Een prachtig, grappig en ontroerend boek.

Junior groeit op in een indianen-reservaat, waar de meeste inwoners alcoholist zijn. Om dit treurig lot te ontlopen besluit Junior dat hij naar een school buiten het reservaat gaat.

Dit boek had een Zilveren Zoen moeten krijgen!
Helaas worden er dit jaar geen Zoenen uitgedeeld, zodat dit juweeltje niet bekroond zal worden. Ik zal het in elk geval op mijn verlang-lijstje met bekroonde boeken zetten. ( )

Arnold (Junior) Spirit is the town misfit. Born with "water on the brain," the odds have always been stacked against him. Life was a challenge from day 1, but luckily Junior was also born with a sense of humor and is surprisingly bright. After challenging a teacher in class, Junior is sure he will be in big trouble. Yet, the teacher surprises him with his honestly. It's a moment that will change the trajectory of Junior's life as he is inspired to make a big decision.

Making the switch from the high school on the rez to the predominantly white high school in the nearby town is a huge deal...for everyone. Junior doesn't immediately fit in at his new school, but now his former friends at his old school treat him like a traitor. Junior finds himself navigating between the two worlds even as tragedy strikes his family several times. Nevertheless, Junior perseveres. Join Junior's journey from misfit to hero as he learns about life and what it takes to get by in this world.

The Bottom Line: When a school committee in my hometown, suggested removing this book from its high school required reading list, I just had to pick it up to see why. Yes, it's filled with racial slurs, discrimination, and sexual situations, but this book is a gem. This is just the kind of book that should be included on high school reading lists because of the honesty that comes through in the writing. Written from the point of view of a 14-year-old, Native American boy, this gripping novel is gritty, witty, and raw. There is so much to discuss in this coming-of-age novel. There are no wasted words here, and Ellen Forney's art is spot-on in depicting what a teen might draw. Highly recommended for young adults, teachers, and parents. I strongly suggest you pick this powerful book up and give it a read even if it makes you uncomfortable. Or maybe, especially if it makes you uncomfortable.

​​Junior had many medical conditions, doctors predicted he wouldn’t live long. Spinal fluid in his brain, left him with a lisp and a stutter. Too many teeth, had to have some removed. He was bullied by other Indians on the reservation and his parents are alcoholics.

Junior loves to draw cartoons. He begins high school on the reservation but is suspended after an incident. (I don’t want to give too much away incase you read it). Junior decides to go to school in an all-white town called Reardan. Junior goes through many ups and downs and then experiences a series of extreme tragedies. The book makes you feel many emotions. He is trying to break out of the life that it seems he is destined to live.

Working in the voice of a 14-year-old forces Alexie to strip everything down to action and emotion, so that reading becomes more like listening to your smart, funny best friend recount his day while waiting after school for a ride home.

I was born with water on the brain. Okay, so that's not exactly true. I was actually born with too much cerebral spinal fluid inside my skull. But cerebral spinal fluid is just the doctors' fancy way of saying brain grease.

"No, I'm serious. I always knew you were going to leave. I always knew you were going to leave us behind and travel the world. I had this dream about you a few months ago. You were standing on the Great Wall of China. You looked happy. And I was happy for you."
During one week when I was little, Dad got stopped three times for DWI: Driving While Indian.
“Son,” Mr. P. said. “You’re going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation.”
I'd always been the lowest Indian on the reservation totem pole-- I wasn't expected to be good so I wasn't. But in Reardan, my coach and the other players wanted me to be good. They needed me to be good. They expected me to be good. And so I became good.
"I used to think the world was broken down by tribes," I said. "By black and white. By Indian and white. But I know that isn't true. The world is only broken into two tribes. The people who are assholes and the people who are not."
