Call me Storylover.
Sherman Alexie is gifted. Flight is not only his best book, it's the best I've read in years.
Better than fry bread with beans. Even better than Hualapai stew.

Zits is a plausible kid--not always easy to like, fearsome even, but loveable. From the Little Bighorn to the terrorist airplane crash, the twists of time and place and person are amazing yet somehow credible. Alexie provides the essence of experience with no wasted words.
Not only do I recommend this book, I'm buying it for my friends.
181 pages of spellbinding text followed by 13 pages of discussion questions--exactly the kind that make students hate reading and hate books. Zits would puke.
