The them of the book, "Buddy" is that love is everything, not money. Buddy is saved by a child who has a family that is quite poor but does everything he can to keep him, even with the littlest amount of money.


The passage that I am reading shows that some dialogue can lead up to the climax. Lil' T does not want to leave Buddy in hurricane Katrina, but Daddy makes him. This leaves you in suspense and leads to the climax. This goes to show that this part of the story shows true dialogue.
