Nate, an eighth grader, has spent his whole life in small town Pennsylvania dreaming about being on Broadway. He and his best friend Libby know all of the songs to all of the musicals ever written, and even talk in a sort of musical show shorthand. When they find out that there are going to be auditions for the musical version of E. T., they concoct a secret plan for Nate to go to NYC by himself to try out for the part of Elliott.    (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher award, 2015)
