Title: Better Nate Than Ever
Author: Tim Federle
Lexile Level: 930L
Recommendations & Comments: A 12 year old boy goes to the big city with his friend to be a Broadway star. What could possibly go wrong? Nate is determined, courageous, and desperate to figure out where in the world he fits. His sexuality is still open and his family life is difficult so parents could expect to discuss some of the content. The friendship between Libby and Nate is something we all hope our best friend would be like. Middle school kids will enjoy the humor, honesty and action of this book.
