The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is a novel about hope, and how important it is to have it and how it helps us stay afloat. In this novel, we see the consequences of people and even whole communities that lack hope. Why is it important to hope? Who has the most hope? Why do only white people seem to have hope? Why does Arnold have hope?
The power of hope is limitless. If we can still dream, then we can imagine ourselves out of even the darkest situation.
When others believe in you, it's so much easier to believe in yourself.
