Summary
Nate Foster has BIG dreams. / Nate has wanted to star in a Broadway show his whole. (Heck, he'd settle for seeing a Broadway show.) But how is Nate supposed to make his dreams come true when he is stuck in Jankburg, Pennsylvania, where no one (except Libby, his best pal) appreciates a good show tune? With Libby's help, Nate plans a daring overnight escape to New York. There is 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. Now is his chance to explore the city, wow the casting director, out-sing the competition, and hop the last bus home before anyone notices he is gone. No big deal, right? But exciting as the Big Apple is, it can also be big trouble. And if Nate is not careful, he will be lucky if he makes it through Times Square, much less the audition. Tim Federle writes a warm and witty debut novel that 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. -- Provided by publisher
