Bud, Not Buddy, by Christopher Paul Curtis [J Fiction]

Reviewed by Fudi

Bud is a runaway who left his foster family because they were being cruel to him. As a runaway, Bud travels from place to place, getting food when he has to, living the life of a free-spirited. But then one day, when he is looking through his stuff, he sees a picture that his mother had given him and realizes that this might be the only clue to finding any family. So Bud begins his journey to find this family member and to try to live a life with meaning.

I really liked this book because it was rather touching and Bud’s experiences are very interesting to read about.  I hope that you will enjoy the book as much as I did.
