A charming, positive story. The tale is about a boy whose mother dies and he finds himself in a home for orphans. The boy goes from home to home when people take him only for the money they are given by the state. The author describes his last home and the boy's escape from a locked shed. He believes he has a father somewhere who is a member of a band. The tale follows Bud in his search for his father who turns out to be his grandfather. It's a positive read about the role that music played during the Depression and how an orphan boy finds a home and people who love him.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Bud is such a smart and captivating character and his view of the things happening around him and the choices he makes make him both extremely endearing and extremely frustrating. (I say frustrating because, as an adult, I want to jump in the book and protect him since some of his choices could potentially be very dangerous.) I love this book and have already shared it with a few friends. It's a quick, fun, entertaining read.
