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.
