As an avid fan of Sherman Alexie I was not disappointed with this book. It follows the story of Zits, a teen who has been in and out of abusive foster homes his entire life. After feeling deep hatred for those who have hurt him in the past, he finally decides to listen to "Justice" and makes a plan to shoot up a bank, even going so far as bringing the gun to the bank in his coat pocket. He then, by some intervention, gets transported to different points in history when killing and violence was done in the name of "Justice" and then, at the end, gets transported into the body of his father who abandoned him and his mom years ago. A very thoughtful storyline in a very "Alexie" way. Be warned — this book is very intense as far as graphic imagery, violence, and language and should not be given to young adults lightly. This book should definitely be used to warrant a discussion or thought. Highly recommend — with caution!
