When the news hits that E.T.: The Musical wasn 't nominated for a single Tony Award --not one! --the show closes, leaving Nate both out of luck and out of a job. And while Nate 's cast mates are eager to move on (the boy he understudies already landed a role on a TV show!), Nate knows it 's back to square one, also known as Jankburg, Pennsylvania. Where horror (read: high school) awaits.

Desperate to turn his life from flop to fabulous, Nate takes on a huge freshman English project with his BFF, Libby: he 's going to make a musical out of Charles Dickens 's Great Expectations. (What could possibly go ...right?) But when Nate 's New York crush ghosts him, and his grades start to slip, he finds the only thing harder than being on Broadway is being a freshman --especially when you 've got a secret you 're desperate to sing out about.

High schools. Musicals. Theater. Friendship. LGBTQ. Family life. Pennsylvania. Best friends. Broadway. Acting. Rehearsals.
