Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Young Adult

Aristotle and Dante really have nothing in common. Ari is an angry teenager toughened by a frustratingly silent father but kept grounded by his loving mother. Dante is the curious son of open-minded intellectuals with his heart on his sleeve. They meet one hot summer day at the pool, and what starts as a challenge turns into a lasting friendship. Ari and Dante discover that finding their own way in a complicated world could be as simple as finding their way together. Saenz’s groundbreaking novel about two young Mexican-Americans struggling with their identity is a story woven with poetic prose, heartfelt honesty, and an ending every reader will be hoping for.

Five, Six, Seven, Nate!
Young Adult

Five, Six, Seven, Nate!, the sequel to Better Nate Than Ever, is a laugh-out-loud story of one young man’s first experience on Broadway, at age 13. He’s a member of the chorus in the brand-new E.T.: The Musical, but he’s giving his small part the energy of a big star. As Nate maneuvers through weeks of training, interactions with other young Broadway stars, and his first long-term separation from his family & best friend, he continues to keep his optimism and hopes for stardom high. Narrated by the author himself, this audiobook will keep you cheering for Nate through the very end!

Better Nate Than Ever
Young Adult

Nate is thirteen, fantastic, and knows it. He travels by himself all the way from Jankburg, PA (45 minutes outside of Pittsburgh) to New York City to audition for E.T.: The Musical. The problems start adding up rather quickly: he gets caught in a downpour and has to arrange for new clothes for his audition; his parents discover that he`s missing; he gets hungry but doesn`t have any money left. Along the way, Nate will not only have his confidence bolstered after his audition, but he`ll discover an entirely new `bigger` world in New York. With the help of his best friend Libby, the support of his aunt Heidi, and the love of his family Nate will discover that he`s a better Nate than ever.

Take A Bow
Young Adult

What is more important fame or friends? This novel follows Carter, Ethan, Emme and Sophie during their auditions and senior year at the School for the Performing Arts in New York, known as the Fame School. Each chapter is devoted to one of them. Carter is an actor, Sophie is a singer, and Ethan and Emme are music composers. Sophie and Emme are best friends. Emme writes music for Sophie to sing. Sophie wants to be a star. Ethan and Emme are in a band with Jack and Ben called Teenage Kicks. Sophie is shocked when Emme decides she wants to sing her own songs with her band. You learn about their fears, hopes, dreams, and their relationships. Reading this book is like watching an episode of Glee.
