Description

A "New York Times" Notable Book of the Year, a "Publishers' Weekly" Best Book of the Year, and a "Slate" Favorite Book of the Year. A small-town boy hops a bus to New York City to crash an audition for "E.T.: The Musical." Nate Foster has big dreams. His whole life, he's wanted to star in a Broadway show. (Heck, he'd settle for "seeing" a Broadway show.) But how is Nate supposed to make his dreams come true when he's stuck in Jankburg, Pennsylvania, where no one (except his best pal Libby) appreciates a good show tune? With Libby's help, Nate plans a daring overnight escape to New York. There's an open casting call for "E.T.: The Musical," and Nate knows this could be the difference between small-town blues and big-time stardom. Tim Federle's "hilarious and heartwarming debut novel" ("Publishers Weekly") is full of broken curfews, second chances, and the adventure of growing up--because sometimes you have to get four hundred miles from your backyard to finally feel at home.

Review quote

"No one captures Broadway or the kids who want to be part of it with the humor, insight and heart of Tim Federle. This hysterical and heartwarming story is for everyone who dreams of going out there a middle-schooler and coming back a star." --Thomas Schumacher, Tony Award-winning producer of The Lion King
