I would recommend this book. Arnold Spirit (a.k.a. Junior) is pretty funny ans his often sarcastic humour comes through,

"I was born with water on the brain.

Okay, so that's not exactly true. I was actually born with too much cerebral spinal fluid inside my skull. But cerebral spinal fluid is just the doctors' fancy way of saying brain grease."

The book delves into themes of both teenage angst,

"Everybody on the rez calls me a retard about twice a day. They call me retard when they are pantsing me or stuffing my head in the toilet or just smacking me upside the head. "

The title of the book itself says a lot about the cultural identity that Junior goes through.
