Better Nate than Ever meets Love Sugar Magic in this spooky second novel in the Fearless middle grade series from Hamilton and Broadway star Mandy Gonzalez about a group of young thespians who time travel back to 1950s Broadway.
Twelve-year-old Relly can’t wait for his beloved grandfather to finally see him on stage! Along with the rest of the Fearless Squad, Relly has just opened Our Time, a brand-new musical at the infamous Ethel Merman Theater. Though his grandfather would prefer his grandson pursue something more “practical,” Relly just knows when he sees the show, he will change his mind and come around on Relly’s love of theater and dance.
But right before their night show, a member of the Squad loses their phone down an open manhole. When the entire Squad goes down to help retrieve it, they find themselves in 1950s Manhattan. A big problem, considering the curtain goes up in about two hours—and over sixty years in the future!
With a series of clues, Relly discovers that his grandfather was a popular tap dancer, working the nightclub circuit and pursuing his dream of performing—something he’s been discouraging Relly from doing lately. Perhaps this accidental fall into a different time wasn’t so accidental after all. Can Relly help his grandfather and make it back in time for places in the show?

coming soon!

About Brittany J. Thurman

I have always had an affinity for stories told by my grandmother. Those same stories hold space in my writing today. My love of writing comes from my love of reading books. As a kid I could not get enough of going to the bookstore. Once, I asked my grandmother to take me to the local bookstore when I was a kid. She took me and I read that book the same day. The next day, I asked if she could take me to the bookstore again. It was at that moment my Gran-Gran introduced me to the library 😉

I am a former resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I worked for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and Reading is Fundamental. I’m not sure how many books I’ve read to children across Pittsburgh, but I estimate hundreds of books to thousands of kids across the City of Bridges. Currently, I reside in my hometown of Louisville, KY.

You may find me biking along the waterfront, hanging out with my family, grilling in the backyard or snuggled up with a good book.
