Bud, Not Buddy
by Christopher Paul Curtis
It's the middle of the Depression, and ten-year-old Bud has run away from his foster home to go search for the father he has never actually known. He thinks his father is the jazz musician that he saw on some posters his mother had saved, so he sets out to find him. He faces danger, violence, comedy, but mostly kindness.
Booklist said this book has "the wry, teasing warmth of family folklore."
