Nate is a small-town boy who's ready to make his Broadway dreams come true! All Nate Foster has ever wanted to do is get out of Jankburg, Pennsylvania, and land a part in a Broadway musical. His dreams feel impossible, until his best friend Libby hears about an open casting for the role of Elliott in E.T.: The Broadway Musical, a role Nate wants so badly he can almost taste it. With Libby's help, Nate concocts a wild scheme to run away to New York, wow the casting director at the audition, and land the part of his dreams. But Nate's New York adventure may be more challenging than he ever expected…. Nate's dreams are big, and his ambition is one-size-fits-all, making this humorous, relatable tale a must-read for anyone who's ever been determined to follow their passion.

Author Biography

Tim Federle was born in San Francisco, grew up in Pittsburgh, and began crashing New York auditions as a teenager, landing in five Broadway shows, from Gypsy (starring Bernadette Peters) to The Little Mermaid (starring Tim in a catfish costume), with stops at Radio City, the Met, and a Super Bowl halftime show along the way. In recent years, Tim has penned popular columns for Apartment Therapy and Huffington Post, choreographed routines for Sting and James Taylor at Carnegie Hall, and coached the child stars of Billy Elliot on Broadway—Tim’s inspiration for his debut novel, Better Nate Than Ever.
