"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.
