Genre: Historical Fiction
Page Count: 245
Bud has lived in an orphanage for four years, ever since his mother died. However, when he decides to try and find his father, using fliers his mother left behind, he starts his own adventure.
I really liked this book. I thought that it gave an interesting perspective of the depression, the main character being a ten year old. I also really liked how many characters there were. A lot of them were only in it a little bit, but you got to see a lot of different people.
This book was also really funny. The way Bud thinks is really amusing, and the book had an overall humorous tone.
If you like historical fiction books about slightly ignorant ten year-olds, you should read this book.
