Teen books are traditionally angst-ridden, but Sherman Alexie combines it with humor in The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. As an author of adult books, this fiction book for teens is semi autobiographical about a budding cartoonist who leaves his troubled school on the Spokane Indian Reservation to attend an all-white farm town school where the only other Indian is the school mascot. This book is a great example of humorous fiction that both teens and adults would enjoy reading.
