Realistic Fiction

Bud, the main character, from Bud, Not Buddy, runs away from foster care and a boy's home to search for the father that he has never met. All he has is an old jazzflyer his deceased mother had in her dresser.

Bud's Story

I would strongly encourage you to read Bud, Not Buddy. The story was entertaining, heart warming, and presented an accurate historical depiction of life for an orphan during the depression era.

While Bud's character was fictional, there was a jazz band by the name of Herman E. Calloway and the Dusky Devastators that toured during the Great Depression.
