Beverly B, July 25, 2014 (view all comments by Beverly B)
Aspiring Broadway star, Nate Foster, stole my heart. Nate's adventures and misadventures are comical, touching and a little scary, but Nate perseveres seeing every encounter as a learning experience that will make him better prepared for stardom. His optimism, enthusiasm, wit and ambition are inspirational. His love of musicals gets him harassed by his peers and ignored by his parents, but he does not let that stop him from studying and learning all of the best songs from all of the best plays. When his best friend tells him there is an open audition for ET The Musical in NYC the same weekend his parents will be out of town, Nate sees it as destiny. He sneaks away from his small town and hops a bus to New York 100% convinced he will win the starring role. Even middle grade readers who have never seen a musical will cheer for Nate and his success.
