BOOK REVIEW AND Kindle Paperwhite + Autographed Book GIVE AWAY - The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper by S. M. Morgan

The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper

by S.M. Morgan 

GENRE:   Middle Grade Fiction 

"Help!! My head is being lowered into the swirling vortex of a toilet!”

My name is Teddy, and I’m in the 6th grade. It’s my first day at a different school, and so far, the only person I know is Zane, the school bully. I was just your everyday kid trying to stay off everyone’s radar, but when I met my new best friend, Bud Wiper, everything changed.

Bud is a 6th grade millionaire from 60 years ago.

Yep, that’s right, Bud Wiper is a treasure hunter from the 1940’s who left behind his journal full of life and adventure, and even though we’ve never met, I think he might be the only thing that gets me through the 6th grade alive.

The Lost Journals of Bud Wiper is a fantastic story of bravery and friendship, perfect for kids, middle school students, and adults.


Leo jumped out of his car and stood in front of Ramsey. “ This not good, mister. Not good. Tell him, perdoon stary, do it now, or they will surely kill us.”

Give them the book Ramsey,” I said, motioning toward the guard.

on his face and then repeated what Leo had told him to say, “Perdoon Stary.” It sounded— strange hearing it from Ramsey with his American accent.

The guards busted out laughing hysterically. Ramsey turned to Leo. “ What did you make me say? ” 

“Old fart,” came a voice in a thick Russian accent.

I turned to see a man that looked like he was in charge step forward. He wore a large rounded bill military cap with a red band and golden emblem around the center. “ Nothing in Russia is private. Now give me the book.” 

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you S.M. Morgan and Goddess Fish Promotions. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

As an 80s child, when I saw the cover of this book, I thought a child version of Indiana Jones. I loved that movie! Told in parallel time lines, this book is the story of Teddy (a modern era kid) dealing with a bully and trying to get through the school year. Contrasted with Bud (a WWII era kid) trying to figure out what happened to his missing parents.

The dichotomies of their personalities drew me into the story. The adventures contained in this book will keep your middle schooler engaged and wanting more. The attention to detail is spot on and the characters are well developed. I found myself rooting for Teddy and Bud as they found the answers they sought. The descriptions were entertaining, and I felt like I was part of the story.

I look forward to reading more form this series and seeing how it unfolds.
