Does not fit in Lego star wars search BPL.

This was my first introduction to this author. I felt the chapters were inconsistent, some were really interesting and funny, some were not so well written and were more page flippers than page turners. The author is self depricating and realistic as well as insightful about his aboriginal background. He does not assume that he is the only one who has had a difficult upbringing, nor that all his problems are because of his ethnic origin. I will certainly read more by this author and recommend him to others.

Pure voice of this author makes this book a must read.

An interesting mix of poetry and prose captures with Sheman Alexie's wit the angst of growing up different while sharing universal truths.
