  • The Absolutely True Dairy of a Part
  • What the heck I'm I supposed to do?????
  • Time Indian by Sherman Alexie .
  • Who has the most hope?
  • Chapter 6
  • I want to transfer schools
  • After Mr. P left, I sat on the porch for a long time and thought about my life. What the heck was I supposed to do? I felt like life had just knocked me on my ass.
  • Chapter 6 Go means Go
  • Hunters?
  • c. “Who has the most hope?” I asked. Mom and Dad looked at each other. And then they both looked back at me. “Come on,” I said. “Who has the most hope?”“White people,” my parents said at the same time.
  • Chapter 6 Go means Go
  • That’s exactly what I thought they were going to say, so I said the most surprising thing they’d ever heard from me.“I want to transfer schools,” I said.
  • Chapter 6 Go means Go
  • Okay
  • “You want to go to Hunters?” Mom said.It’s another school on the west end of the reservation, filled with poor Indians and poorer white kids. Yes, there is a place in the world where the white people are poorer than the Indians.
  • Springdale?
  • “I want to go to Reardan,” I said. Reardan is the rich, white farm town that sits in the wheat fields exactly twenty-two miles away from the rez. And it’s a hick town, I suppose, filled with farmers and rednecks and racist cops who stop every Indian that drives through.
  • I want to go to Reardan
  • “Okay,” they said.Yep, it was that easy with my parents. It was almost like they’d been waiting for me to ask them if I could go to Reardan, like they were psychics or something.
