The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

Memory Moment

March 24th, 2015

During the first part of the book the character flashes back to stories from his early life. He explains how he had too much fluid in his brain, and how that effected him. I felt sad for a this kid has gone through, he seems to have a rough life. He talks about his family a little and about his dog, Oscar. I haven't read why he has this flashback, one reason might be just to get to know him more.

Tough Questions

March 25th, 2015

Who is Junior? He seems like a kid who is a misfit. He has so many things wrong with him that he acts like he hates himself. I think he is just troubled, not physically as he states, but mentally. Maybe he doesn't what to do with his life. He goes through a lot of trouble, it's obvious when you look at what is wrong with him. He talks about his medical conditions and his dog and friend. He sees all these troubles like poverty in his family and I think he just needs to figure out what to do with his life and how to overcome the struggles. Mr. P tells him to leave and find hope which probably makes him question himself further what to do with his life. He is likely confused why he needs to sort his problems and find a solution.

Words of the Wiser

March 26th, 2015

Mr. P is a good example of words of the wiser. He is a wise old person. I think of him like that old person who gives advice to the young, and that is what a words of the wiser person would do. He is nice to Junior of forgiving him and talks to him about what he did wrong. Mr. P also shows concern about Junior. He said for his good he needs to leave the reservation to find hope. Obviously Mr. P is giving  Junior his opinion for Juniors own good. Mr. P is obviously a caring person who is concerned about the future of the Indian's future beacause they don't have much of a chance on the reservation.
