Book of the Month

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is young adult book by Sherman Alexie, released in September 2007. Based on Alexie's own experiences about leaving his reservation to attend a school, this book made Ajumma laugh out loud and cry.

Ajumma recently saw Alexie at an appearance in her hometown and felt he was refreshing, hilarious, and candid even after years of being on the book circuit.
