Flight

Introduction

Flight is a novel written by Sherman Alexie. It is written in the first-person, from the viewpoint of a Native American teenager who calls himself Zits, "a time traveling mass murderer." Zits is a foster child, having spent the majority of his life moving from one negative or abusive family experience to another. His friend, Justice, introduces Zits to a new way of thinking, and to the idea of committing random violence. Just in the middle of one of these incidents, Zits is thrust into the body of a stranger—which would become the first of many similar incidents. The story confronts Zits' feelings of vulnerability as a misunderstood teenager, orphan, and as a Native American person.[1]
