Bud, Not Buddy is a book about a 10-year old boy in Flint, Michigan trying to find his father. Time are hard: It is the Great Depression, and Bud’s mother is deceased, though she has left some clues about Bud’s father. The plot was patchy in some places, but it definitely kept me intrigued and in the story. The start of the story is a bit hard to follow, but the middle is strong and the rest of book and makes perfect sense. The end changes Bud’s world, and makes you conclude that this is a good book. I think almost all readers will enjoy this book, and I give it 3.5 stars.
