Bud, Not Buddy
So, it's been four years since his mom died, and ten-year-old Bud Caldwell takes off from his third foster home in search of a better way to live his life. He's sick of being an orphan: unwanted, unloved, and all alone. On his own, he finds out how rough it is in Michigan in , during the Great Depression. He meets many kind people along the way who help him complete his most awesome quest: to find the man that he thinks is his father. He's looking for a guy whose picture was on some old flyers for jazz concerts his mother kept around their house, so he doesn't have too much to go on. Oh, and did we mention that Bud is looking for a place to finally call home? Sounds pretty tough, right?
Ever wonder what life would be like on your own? You'd get to eat whatever you want, go to sleep whenever you want, do whatever you want, right? In Bud, Not Buddy , ten-year-old Bud Caldwell is on his own, but life alone isn't as fun as it seems: You have to deal with hornets, vampires, starvation, and muskrat stew. Sometimes you have to sleep under trees. You have to walk miles and miles, you can't trust anyone, and there's no one around to give you a hug. Yeah, being on your own during the Great Depression sounds like one of worst things that could happen to a kid. Especially if you are a young African-American boy in a very racist place.
