Bud is an orphaned boy who lives in a Home. One day, him and his friend, Jerry, got adopted. Bud has been adopted many times before, so it was another time where he would go, then be return to the home. Bud is adopted by the Amoses and Jerry is going to another family.
I know being in a house with three girls sounds terrible, Jerry, but it's a lot better than being with a boy who's a couple of years older than you.
You really think so?
The Amoses mistreated Bud. Todd would beat up Bud in front of Mrs. Amos and she would take Todd's side and not listen to what Bud had to say.
I am not the least bit surprised at your show of ingratitude.
The Amoses put Bud into their shes at night because they were punishing him for ¨hurting¨ Bud. Wen he was in the shed, he thought a bees nest was a vampire bat so he tried to kill it, and ended p getting hurt in the process. He broke away from the shed, got revenge and went back to the Home.
Aha. you doggone Amoses, that hurt, but now I get my revenge!
Went he went back to the Home, he couldn't go inside, so he slept under a Christmas tree. A couple nights later, he got woken up by one of his friends, Bugs. They wanted to leave Flint and get on a train and find Buds father, so they walked until they came along a Hooverville. A lot of things happened here, but when they were supposed to get on the train, bud could not get on so Bugs left him.
After Bud didn't get on the train, he was determined to find his father. He walked for so long to go to Grand Rapids. On the way, a car saw him so he hid in a bush. The person that found him was Lefty Lewis. He helped him go back to Grand Rapids.
Bud thought his father was Herman E Calloway. When he first said that Herman was h is father, Herman was surprised. He never liked Bud. It turns out that Herman E calloway was Buds grandfather. Herman was s ad at first. They grew to have a better relationship.
