Literature: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
Imagine you're an American Indian. No, not a Memetic Badass or Magical Native American. No, imagine you're born with hydrocephaly, ten extra teeth, and you've had glasses since age 3. And you have a lisp and stutter even in high school. Now imagine you go to a white school. And your reservation friends hate you for it. And even there, you're smarter than the teachers.

That is the world of Arnold Spirit Jr. in Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.

This book provides us examples of the following:
