Bud, Not Buddy

Curtis, Christopher Paul

Bud, Not Buddy

Genre: drama

It's 1936, in Flint, Michigan. Times may be hard, and ten-year-old Bud may be a motherless boy on the run, but Bud's got a few things going for him:

1. He has his own suitcase filled with his own important, secret things.

2. He's the author of Bud Caldwell's Rules and Things for Having a Funner Life and Making a Better Liar Out of Yourself.

3. His momma never told him who his father was, but she left a clue: flyers of Herman E. Calloway and his famous band, the Dusky Devastators of the Depression!!!!!!

Bud's got an idea that those flyers will lead him to his father. Once he decides to hit the road and find this mystery man, nothing can stop him--not hunger, not fear, not vampires, not even Herman E. Calloway himself.

I liked this book because it was detailed and it made you feel like you were in the book. It was very detailed that I could picture the character and not think twice if he\she really looked like that. I'm really into these types of books. Like old timey but nonfictional. All this stuff that happened in the book really happened. I like that because its like you learn things from it too. The book had important events that happened long ago like the great depression. And I'm interested in things like that. The book never had a dull moment. Something was always going on. So you wont get bored while reading the book.
