In the sequel to Odyssey Award Honor Audiobook and Stonewall Honor Book, Better Nate Than Ever, Nate Foster’s Broadway dreams are finally coming true. Now on CD and as an audio download!

Armed with a one-way ticket to New York City, small-town theater geek Nate is off to start rehearsals for E.T.: The Broadway Musical. It’s everything he ever practiced his autograph for! But as thrilling as Broadway is, rehearsals are nothing like Nate expects: full of intimidating child stars, cut-throat understudies, and a director who can’t even remember Nate’s name.

Now, as the countdown to opening night is starting to feel more like a time bomb, Nate is going to need more than his lucky rabbit’s foot if he ever wants to see his name in lights. He may even need a showbiz miracle.

The companion novel to Better Nate Than Ever, which The New York Times called “inspired and inspiring,” Five, Six, Seven, Nate! is full of secret admirers, surprise reunions, and twice the drama of middle school...with a lot more glitter. Download and start listening now!

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Once again, narrator Tim Federle captures all of the angst and exuberance of middle-schooler Nate Foster…Federle manages both nuance and melodrama…Federle’s delivery reflects his familiarity with the characters. His pacing and inflection will have listeners feeling they’re right there with Nate and the rest of the raucous crew, both backstage and offstage…Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Everyone could use a little more glitter in their lives, and Nate shares his with those who are willing to celebrate that being an understudy can one day earn you top billing.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Provides a plot-driven, exaggerated exposé behind the scenes of a Broadway show that’s sure to entertain, and it continues to use Nate’s naïveté and the zany characters of the theater for laugh-out-loud levity…Will certainly be applauded by his loyal fan base.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Readers will cheer Nate along while also relating to him because, as Nate sagely observes, Broadway is just ‘like a junior high school cafeteria but with more glitter.’”
