    ㊣超勵志小說㊣


    種族歧視,無所不在,但這也考驗著自己的心志。
    成長哪有不受點傷的,為了生活的尊嚴,面對這樣的傷害多半也只能逆來順受,
    自我調適是第一件要緊事,然後再來是客觀以對。

    這個社會很殘酷,即便是天生殘疾之人也對為了生活的緣故,努力不懈。
    歧視是一種極為扭曲的心理,雖無法有效制止﹔不過事在人為。
    贏得他人尊重的唯一方法,就是設法證明自己,
    活在困頓與壓力之中的人,
    更能理解獲得認同感與自我價值的肯定,不是來自於外在環境,而是自我內在的提升。

    生活裡大小事,總要學著去適應,難怕有阻力,還是能關關難過, ...(continue)

    歧視是一種極為扭曲的心理,雖無法有效制止﹔不過事在人為。
    贏得他人尊重的唯一方法,就是設法證明自己,
    活在困頓與壓力之中的人,
    更能理解獲得認同感與自我價值的肯定,不是來自於外在環境,而是自我內在的提升。

    生活裡大小事,總要學著去適應,難怕有阻力,還是能關關難過,關關過。
    受人歧視的傷害,也容易引發自卑與自憐,更有可能自輕自賤,
    若每件事都要往心裡去,那這樣怨恨恐怕是沒完沒了。

    人生父母養。是何血統,是何種族,都不應該低人一等,那可是上天厚賜的禮物。
    面對自己和旁人的獨特,心裡不應有輕視之心,
    因為受過教育的人,理當胸懷大度,若淨做些小鼻子小眼睛的事,那就太沒品了。

    Come tanti libri di protagonisti "schiappe" Il diario dell'indiano part-time è infarcito di umorismo e leggera demenzialità all'americana: piacevole, veloce.

    Eppure, nonostante la fusione (abbastanza malriuscita, forse) con le illustrazioni di Ellen Forney, sono i temi duri affrontati dal libro: non aspettatevi momenti di spensierata allegria da sit-com perché per tutto sul tenace protagonista Junior il libro aleggia l'ombra della "dura realtà" con cui fare i conti: migliori amici "che ti odiano", alcolismo, povertà, conflitti razziali...

    Insomma, per il suo genere la "schiappa" indiana ha un nemico molto più tosto rispetto ai classici bulletti americani: morte e realtà. Pare ancora un libro per soli bambini?

    An amazing coming of age story. I can't recommend this highly enough. Funny, smart, moving. It's got the lot. A brilliant main character, who's full of guts and wit and just won't give up.

    Iniziato e finito in una sera :) sembra un Adrian Mole più motivato e meno gratuitamente scurrile. Bello!

    Uno dei libri più acuti ed intelligenti. Molto bello, interessante, denso di significati e di spunti vitali.

    I read this book because I will be handing it out for World Book Night 2012.

    This was a super quick read. The language, subject matter, and heart of this story is all very much aimed at teens, yet somehow it felt more young than that. Perhaps it was the cartoons interspersed. I think I would have preferred it if the illustrations were sketches instead, as they are in a few places. The cartoons kept me distanced. On the plus side I liked the voice and the humor. The overall themes of race and poverty were not new to me, but they were explored deftly.
