                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.
