Bud, Not Buddy This funny and poignant novel set in 1930's Michigan tells the story of Bud, a 10 year old boy who goes on the run from an abusive foster home in search of his birth father. A battered suitcase carries precious reminders of his mother and a clue to his paternity in the shape of a flyer advertising a jazz band led by Herman E. Calloway. His journey towards a new family and sense of identity involves him in many adventures, encounters with memorable characters, and an understanding of the racism of the Depression era. Bud's engaging and optimistic personality is memorably expressed in the way he tells his own story.
