You are one thing yet you are another. This is a feeling many people experience on a daily base; the feeling of being a paradox in its own right. Arnold Spirit Junior, protagonist in Sherman Alexies The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, feels this way as well. On top of this, he also needs to deal with changing schools, and in order to be able to do this, he needs to change himself. I belief that he used the idea of the Native American trickster figure to do this. Because through all of my research I have concluded that the trickster is a paradox in its own terms. It is a god who creates the world and it is a human who makes mistakes. Yet the trickster is much more than that, and so is Junior.

"Like Siberia itself, this story is wild, mysterious, full of danger—and then, quite unexpectedly, captivates you with its beauty. I was so glad I went on the adventure." —Goldy Moldavsky, New York Times bestselling author of Kill the Boy Band Notes from My Captivity is a sharp, sensitive, and darkly funny novel perfect for fans of Libba Bray’s Beauty Queens and Adam Silvera’s More Happy Than Not. Adrienne Cahill cares about three things: getting into a great college; becoming a revered journalist like her idol, Sydney Declay; and making her late father proud of her. So when Adrienne is offered the chance to write an article that will get her into her dream school and debunk her foolish stepfather’s belief that a legendary family of hermits is living in the Siberian wilderness, there’s no question that she’s going to fly across the world. But the Russian terrain is even less forgiving than Adrienne. And when disaster strikes, none of their extensive preparations seem to matter. Now Adrienne’s being held captive by the family she was convinced didn’t exist, and her best hope for escape is to act like she cares about them, even if it means wooing the youngest son.
