Publisher's Summary

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 writes a warm and witty debut that's full of broken curfews, second chances, and the adventure of growing up - because sometimes you have to get 400 miles from your backyard to finally feel at home.

great story & great storytelling

Tim Federle does not READ us his book like so many authors do when they narrate their own work. He performs it. It's his book and he knows it inside and out and can really tell it beautifully.

I found myself halfway through the book before I knew I was caught up in it.
