Five, Six, Seven, Nate!

Federle, Tim. Five, Six, Seven, Nate! Simon and Schuster BFYR, 2014.

This sequel to Better Nate than Ever follows Nate as he prepares for and performs in ET: The Musical. As per usual, Nate's inexperience in all things Broadway as well as his Disney-esque luck play a major role in plot development. This story is entertaining and adorable. The fact that Nate is gay doesn't really play into the plot that much; this is not a coming-out story, but rather a story with a character who happens to be gay, which makes it a welcome addition to the LGBT YA cannon.

Recommended for: middle grade, tweens

Red Flags: none

Overall Rating: 5/5 stars
