A small-town boy hops a bus to New York City to crash an audition for E.T.: The Musical in this winning middle grade novel that The New York Times called "inspired and inspiring."
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's "hilarious and heartwarming debut novel" ( Publishers Weekly ) 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.

This book is an absolute delight. Nate is a charming and hilarious narrator (seriously, I was laughing out loud on numerous occasions) and his quest is fun and exciting. It's a fun romp that is also very sweet and had me taking out the sequel as soon as I finished.
