Buddy is a classic boy-and-dog tale set against the events of Hurrican Katrina.
Tyrone "Li'l T" Roberts meets Buddy when his family's car accidentally hits the stray dog on their way to church. Buddy turns out to be the dog Li'l T's always wished for - until Hurricane Katrina comes to New Orleans and he must leave Buddy behind.
After the storm, Li'l T and his father return home to find a community struggling to rebuild their lives - and Buddy gone. But Li'l T refuses to give up his quest to find his best friend.
“A touching tale of hope, of holding on when you can, and of letting go when it’s the right thing to do.” - Kirkus Reviews
