This is one of the best books I read in 2013. Absolutely perfect for theater kids. I take great issue with the above mention of "immoral tone" - this is about a boy who loves musical theater. The word fag is used, and he mentions (very much in passing) that his father had an affair. As for sexuality, it is addressed, but the narrator says he's not gay or not-gay - he doesn't really know or care at this point. Overall, very very funny and I can't wait to read Five, Six, Seven, Nate.

One star for plot, another for humor, a half for keeping interest. -2.5 for immoral tone. Seriously, this is supposed to be a kids book.

This book is LOADS of fun! The hero is funny, daring and honest. And the author knows the experience of coming to Broadway from a small town and finding a place to fit in, so he's writing from the heart, too. Recommend to 4th - 8th graders who like humor and realistic adventure told by a wisecracking narrator. Don't miss out on this one!

I found this article about the book.* Based on that, it seems well worth reading. There is a sequel; if you are a young reader, please post a comment about this book and whether the library should get the sequel. You can ask for it under the 'using the library' tab > 'suggest a purchase'. *http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tim-federle/book-for-kids-raises-eyebrows-over-young-gay-character_b_3976264.html?utm_source=concierge&utm_medium=onsite&utm_campaign=sailthru%2Bslider%2B
