The past 5 weeks we have read our book. I have been reading “The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian” and it has been incredible.
This takes place in The pacific northwest town of Wellpinit and Reardan, We know this because he mentioned some of the locations in that area. In Wellpinit is where Arnold (The protagonist)lives with his mother, father, sister, and grandmother. Reardan is the second major setting in this novel. This is where his new school was. Reardan school was twenty-two miles away from his home, but he decided to go there because he wanted a better education. This shows development in the character(Arnold). It shows that he wants to succeed in life even if it takes to leave all his friends. I see this as well as the theme, that if life kicks you down you need to kick right back up. He lives in poverty and gets bullied in school but he fights to succeed in life. He moved to a better school where he didn’t know anybody because his school was bad, that is something to admire.
The plot is about a person who lives in a poor community and up through the stories timeline he experiences tragedies in his family. Even though his conditions he decides to do something about it.
