This book is super funny and has a lot of heart, but it is not a comedy. Sherman Alexie has such an amazing life story that he has put into many of his works such as this book and the short story ’Superman and Me’. He is a pretty awesome dude.

I loved this book. It was one of the most sad and funny books I have read in awhile. The end made me cry. I recommend this book to anyone who likes realistic fiction.
