Five, Six, Seven, Nate! - by Tim Federle
Fiction. After finally achieving his dream of being cast in a Broadway musical, theater-obsessed eighth-grader Nate discovers that Broadway is a lot "like a junior high school cafeteria but with more glitter." As the understudy to E.T.'s understudy in E.T.: The Musical, Nate's got a lot to prove, not just to the better-looking actors, pushy stage parents, and frustrated choreographers, but also to his loyal best friend, his complicated family, and himself. With snappy dialogue, effervescent humor, and lots of heart, this encore to Better Nate Than Ever will appeal to fans of Raina Telgemeier's Drama.
