Better Nate than Ever

Synopsis

Nate Foster has big dreams. His whole life, he's wanted to star in a Broadway show. (In fact, he'd settle for seeing a Broadway show.) With best pal 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 touching debut is full of broken curfews, second chances and the adventure of growing up - because sometimes you have to get four hundred miles from your back garden to finally feel at home.

A Stonewall Honor Book, New York Times Notable Book of the Year, a Publishers' Weekly Best Book of the Year, a Slate Favorite Book of the Year and an Amazon Best Book of 2013.

"Hilarious and heartwarming... this book soars." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
