Bud, Not Buddy

This was supposed to start my summer reading, but for some reason something else kept getting shifted to the top of the stack. My loss. Now that I finally got to it, the week before school started, I wish I would have read it earlier so I could flip back to page 1 and read it again.
I like books I can connect to music; reading this in class would be accompanied by jazz and 1930's tunes.
