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 four hundred miles from your backyard to finally feel at home.

"What a listening pleasure! Author-read narrations are not always successful, but in this case, Tim Federle is a star. HeÕs the heart and soul of 13-year-old Nate, who is passionate about his acting and knowledge of musicals but disheartened by his family and the bullies at school. HeÕs also unclear about his sexuality. To the supporting characters, Federle brings vocal nuances that deepen each personalityÑfrom an estranged aunt to casting directors and overbearing child stars and parents. Listeners will experience laugh-out-loud moments as Nate and his friend Libby secretly travel from Pennsylvania to New York City to attend auditions for ET, THE MUSICAL, just a one-day outingÑor, not.
