STAGE TUBE: Tim Federle Previews New Book- FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, NATE!
Author Tim Federle's follow-up to Better Nate Than Ever -- FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, NATE! -- will be published by Simon and Schuster on January 21, 2014. Check out a trailer for the new book below!
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...Five, Six, Seven, Nate! is full of secret admirers, surprise reunions, and twice the drama of middle school...with a lot more glitter.
Federle's debut novel, Better Nate Than Ever, was inspired by his adventures backstage, and Five, Six, Seven, Nate! chronicles Nate Foster's further exploits in E.T.: The Musical.
Federle has appeared on Broadway in the 2003 revival of Gypsy, 2005's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and 2008's The Little Mermaid and Billy Elliot, as well as the US Tour of Spamalot in 2006 and the Encores! production of Bye Bye Birdie in 2004.
