A fledgling cartoonist, Arnold Spirit Jr., or Junior as he's known on the rez, leaves his Spokane Indian Reservation high school after throwing his 30-year-old geometry textbook at his teacher. Reading his own work with appropriate pacing and true emotion, Alexie explores major issues of belonging and leaving your community, life and death, and the value of friendship.
Born with water on the brain, Arnold Spirit, aka Junior, transfers to an all-white school off his reservation. He knows he won't easily fit in, but with self-determination and a solid personal identity, he has the chance to succeed.
