            Plot Summary: This is a story of a boy who is on the run and is looking for his father since his mother never told him. He will not let anything get in his way.


            Personal response: I really enjoyed reading this book. It was very inspiring and great. This book has a lot of determination for bud. I like how it has lyrics in it on page 76. The book was in first person view. When a new chapter begins the few words are italicized showing that this is what the chapter is going to be about. The chapters in the story are great.
