2007 National Book Award Winner The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie is available on audio from Recorded Books.
A starred review from School Library Journal says, “The teen’s determination to both improve himself and overcome poverty, despite the handicaps of birth, circumstances, and race, delivers a positive message in a low-key manner. Alexie’s tale of self-discovery is a first purchase for all libraries.” The book, which includes cartoon illustrations of the protagonist’s daily life, will appeal to reluctant readers who are put-off by large quantities of text. Pair the print book with the Recorded Books audio to totally engage your students in the text.
