Sherman Alexie’s book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is the winner of the 2008 Boston Globe-Horn Book Fiction Award. It’s an outstanding young adult novel. I loved it! I give it my highest recommendation.
Sherman Alexie’s award acceptance speech is printed in the January/February 2009 issue of The Horn Book Magazine. You can read the speech here. (You can also scroll down that page at The Horn Book's website and click on a link to listen to Alexie give his speech.)
