The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie

The book was removed, pending further review.
Hank Moss wishes his son's school had given him some warning about the graphic nature of one of their assigned books: Sherman Alexie's "Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian." They didn't, so he took his complaint to the school board, and the book was removed from the classroom pending a reexamination of the school's policies. Community members comment.
