This year's One Book One School title is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie. The novel tells the story of the year when high school student, Arnold Spirit Jr. (aka Junior), leaves his reservation school with high hopes only to become a misfit at an upscale high school. Junior is funny and awkward but has big dreams and the courage it takes to achieve them. Winner of the National Book Award, The New York times describes the novel as "a gem of a book."
