Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian: Sherman

Explore Sherman Alexie's book.

Absolutely True...

And this book says something else: that as much as you can love your parents, as much as you can love your community, as much as you can love your family, you can also be radically different from them.

It says that you can be part of your family and yet distinct from it, and that doesn’t change your love for your family, but it changes who you become.
