“What a listening pleasure!
Author-read narrations are not always successful, but in this case, Tim Federle
is a star. He’s the heart and soul of thirteen-year-old Nate, who is passionate
about his acting and knowledge of musicals but disheartened by his family and
the bullies at school. He’s also unclear about his sexuality. To the supporting
characters, Federle brings vocal nuances that deepen each personality—from an
estranged aunt to casting directors and overbearing child stars and parents.
Listeners will experience laugh-out-loud moments as Nate and his friend Libby
secretly travel from Pennsylvania to New York City to attend auditions for ET, The Musical, just a one-day outing—or,
not. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award and the 2014 Odyssey Honor.”
