Coming of age story, set in 1978, in the Southern California desert. Very very good. #americanboy

I'm a day late and woefully behind for #LyricalApril, but here's my #AmericanBoy — good ol' Tom Sawyer!

Fun fact: I played Becky Thatcher in my fifth grade production of the play by the same title. I won the award for best actress. 💁(I didn't have a lot of competition.)

#lyricalapril #americanboy Nate is a thirteen-year-old musical theatre geek (whose sexuality is both undecided and none of your business, thank you very much!) who runs away to New York City to audition in an open casting call for ET: The Musical. Sweet, funny, and set in an iconic American city!

Cinfhen This sounds adorable ❤️🗽 6y

This cover is one interpretation of #AmericanBoy. Even part of the series! I bought this book from an amazing used bookstore in Rockford, Illinois on a road trip. Bought purely for the cover.💕

So looking through my books for today's #americanboy prompt I realized how many of my books are written from a female perspective, but I did think of this book which is my favorite book I have read in 2017! It takes place in Norway but the main character, Sheldon, is American and Jewish and these facts are essential to the story! #lyricalapril

Cinfhen Sheldon is such a great character 😍like your out of the box thinking 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻this was a quirky read! 6y
EllieDottie @Cinfhen I know I loved this book and I loved Sheldon!! 6y

#LyricalApril Day 24 - #americanboy

My first thought for American boy was Holden. Finally a book I have read, although it's been so long I don't really remember it.

EllieDottie Oh this is a good one!! 6y
Blaire Good choice. 6y
Cinfhen Such a good book and a wonderful choice 😎🇺🇸👍🏻 6y
underthebelljar @EllieDottie @Blaire @Cinfhen Thanks! Holden definitely captures the essence of "American boy". 6y
