              BNB is the best book I ever read in my life. On Dogs it's the GOAT of all books. The story on fleek, Character background radical, and the attention to detail unbelievable

                    I really like this book. It tells you the story of Bud, a ten year old boy who is trying to find his father. Through supposed vampires and mean foster parents, he finds many friends along the way. I give this book a 100% rating. Read it if you like good stories.

                      This is a hilarious story with mind blowing characters. This gives you a very god idea of what it was like during the 1930s and makes you feel so much more thankful for what we have, now. The crazy thing about this is you are learning and getting a good laugh at the same time! I would definately recommend this book and am proud to say this is one of my 2 favorite books ever!!!
