If you are (or were) a teen who loves Broadway musicals, New York City, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, and funny novels, have I got a book for you! Better Nate Than Ever, written by former Broadway performer Tim Federle, is the story of Nate, a 13-year-old boy from a small town in Pennsylvania who runs away from home (with the help of a “borrowed” ATM card and a Greyhound bus) to New York, where he auditions for the role of Eliot in a brand new musical based on the movie E.T. 

Will he become a star?  You’ll have to read the book to find out, but I guarantee you’ll be rooting for him.
