Bluffton is about a boy, Henry, who had an ordinary life in Muskegon, Michigan. Then the Vaudevillians came. One of the Vaudevillians was a boy named Buster. Buster was a very good performer in the circus. After the first game of baseball they became inseparable friends. Buster came every summer break and the 2 boys fished, played pranks, and played lots of baseball when Henry didn’t have to work for his dad. One summer Henry found Buster and Sally, who is a neighbor of Henry’s, sitting on Sally’s porch and talking. Henry was jealous and did not like it, so they got in a big fight and they did not talk to for the rest of the summer. That school year Henry began to learn about some struggles that Buster was going thru and when Buster returned for summer vacation their friendship grows deeper.


I like the book because of the way it is written with the details in the pictures. I got this book thinking that it was a normal book but it was better.  It is like a graphic novel but with realistic pictures. I really enjoyed reading a true story this way. It is a very good book because of the way it is put together; you can read it several times and see new things in the pictures every time.
