    Sherman Alexis has created sheer poetry. I have read it several times, and will undoubtedly read it again someday. Beautiful- equal parts hilarity and heartbreaking.
  • Sooo funny

    Read this book for fun, on the bus, when you have 15' for free, in your bed. Only for fun and relax yourself.
  • Loved it!!!

    By Kimster4768
    Quick and easy read. It teaches people how to stand up for what they believe in, and follow their dreams. Loved the characters and writing style. Definitely not appropriate for anyone under 13.
  • Well it's a book

    By Someone who read a book
    Well you see here, this is an amazing thing in regards as it is a book. It has a clear beginning, middle, and an ending that resolves something. Some of the characters undergo a change. And a lot of people die. The story is whiten my someone called Sherman Alexie, who is an author. There are pictures in the book that show things instead of words. The chapters are clearly stated, and the pages are numbered. In the end, it is a book.
  • Awesome!!!

    Loved reading it! Took only a day to finish, I was so hooked. It was hilarious, compelling and tragic; that I started to read his other novels and poems. :)
