My first piece of evidence is how Harry Potter has a hard life is because when he was a toddler his parents died. That would make Harry’s life hard because they were not there for Him. When he felt different feelings or tried new things, his parents weren 't there. How would he be able to know what was right or wrong?, And what he should and should not do? The answer is, he would not be able to know.That shows that he has a hard life because he would not have those memories, and feelings of his parents and he could go down a bad path without them.

An individual that conforms to society will only go as far as society allows. It seems as if an individual’s personal aspirations are held at the will of society’s judgment if there is even a slight whiff of deviation from the ‘social norm.’ Arnold is a teenage boy who dreams big but feels limited due to his circumstances, so he seeks better education at Reardan. On the surface, Sherman Alexie’s, “The Absolutely True Diary of A Part-Time Indian” portrays a teenager’s struggle of poverty growing up on an Indian reservation, however, it more importantly conveys an individual’s struggle against societal constraints. Arnold has a clear conscious when it comes to the reality of the poverty he lives in. The author communicates this, “And because you 're Indian you start believing you 're destined to be poor.
For one thing, he thought that he didn 't need to learn because he had art to move him a long through life. After Adolf dropped out of school he enrolled in a merger art school, but they didn’t want him there because he didn’t get his high school diploma.

Secondly, the wars he was in impacted him.
In the reservation, he feels isolation because he is highly intelligent and is above many of his peers. Since he is highly intelligent he decides that he wants to make a better life for himself and leave the reservation. He decides to go to Reardan where his isolation continues. He is now the only Indian in an all-white school. People start to question him and even though it is obvious he is not like them he isolates parts of his life to what is on the reservation and what is not.
Alone in the world, Junior is a young Native American, fighting against the rising tides against him to be hopeful. The novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, written by Sherman Alexie, is about the growth of a teenage Native American, Junior, as he strives to be more than what is given to him. Junior is trying to find himself amidst the dying world of his forefathers and is stripped of his culture. He is also initially hesitant of success for it may cost him the only thing he has left, which is his community. In the passage, “If You Stay On The Rez…” is an extremely important passage since it not only kick starts Junior’s desire to leave and have a chance verse the pitiful life he would continue on the reservation but also draws into the light, the feeling of ‘should I stay or should I go.’ In the novel, “If You Stay On The Rez…” is the most significant passage because it expresses the overlapping theme that hope and chances are only earned through taking risks, and propels the plot of the story in a different direction, one that is brighter than the initial dark, humorous beginning.
Alexie points out that “poverty only teaches you to be poor” (553). In this statement he logically concludes that his family has not been able to advance because all they know is the poverty they live in. In contrast, Alexie, once again, only considers his viewpoint. Although his statement is the case for his situation, it does not address situations where people have risen out of poverty, whether it is himself or other people within the reservation. His situation is not the same situation for all.
