A gem of a book . . . may be Sherman Alexie's best work yet
New York Times
It's humane, authentic and, most of all, it speaks
Funny, frank and engaging
A remarkable tale that is sure to resonate and lift spirits of all ages to come
Emotionally spring-loaded, linguistically gymnastic and devastatingly funny
San Francisco Bay Guardian
A coming-of-age story so well observed that its very rootedness in one specific culture is also what lends its universality
starred review, Publishers Weekly
Worth re-reading purely for the quality of the prose. Poignant and often heart-breaking, but ultimately very much uplifting.
Deftly mingles raw feeling with funny, sardonic insight
starred review, Kirkus
Totally deserves to be on any 13+ reading list.
An Absolute Must Read for teens, Lovereading
As painful, pungent and provocative as it was first time around.
Irish Times, Robert Dunbar
Unusual and uplifting story of ambition, loyalty and acceptance.
