Five, Six, Seven, Nate by Tim Federle

Five, Six, Seven, Nate by Tim Federle
Simon and Schuster, 2014

from Goodreads:
Nate Foster's Broadway dreams are finally coming true. Armed with a one-way ticket to New York City, small-town theater geek Nate is off to start rehearsals for E.T.: The Broadway Musical . It's everything he ever practiced his autograph for! But as thrilling as Broadway is, rehearsals are nothing like Nate expects: full of intimidating child start, cutthroat understudies, and a director who can't even remember Nate's name. 

Now, as the countdown to opening night is starting to feel more like a time bomb, Nate is going to need more than his lucky rabbit's foot if he ever wants to see his name in lights. He may even need a showbiz miracle.

Despite the childish cover, last year's Better Nate Than Ever tackled some serious topics and concluded with Nate reaching his dream.

It's hard for sequels in the Newbery because they need to be complete stories in and of themselves. Can Five, Six, Seven, Nate follow in the footsteps of past winners; Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor (1977) or The Grey King by Susan Cooper (1976) which where both #4 in a series?
