In literature


Better Nate Than Ever (2013, Simon & Schuster [16] ): Federle's debut novel for middle graders, Better Nate Than Ever, tells the story of 13-year-old Nate, who sneaks away from his home in Pennsylvania to audition for E.T: The Musical on Broadway. [17] [18] In a CNN article about the book, Federle said: "I think so often when you're a kid, we mellow out those more interesting edges in order to coast through middle school quietly. By the time you get to high school, you're left asking, who the heck am I? I would encourage kids to try and figure out the thing that sets you apart, not publicly but that you're passionate about internally." [19] Nate was published to critical acclaim [20] and has gone into multiple printings since its release. [21] Described by the Huffington Post as "Judy Blume as seen through a Stephen Sondheim lens," [22] and The New York Times as "inspired and inspiring," [23] Better Nate Than Ever has been celebrated as unique for being a "book where teenage sexuality is treated with a light touch". [24] The novel was an Amazon Best Book of 2013, [25] a New York Times Notable Book of 2013, [26] a Stonewall Book Award Honor Book, [27] and a Lambda Literary Award finalist. [28] The audio book was an Odyssey Award Honor Book, [29] and was narrated by Federle. In 2021, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures announced a film adaptation of the book with Federle himself serving as both writer and director for the film. [30] It was later announced that Better Nate Than Ever would debut on Disney+ in the spring of 2022. [31]

Five, Six, Seven, Nate! (2014, Simon & Schuster): In December 2013, Entertainment Weekly ran an excerpt of Five, Six, Seven, Nate!, Federle's follow-up to Better Nate Than Ever. [32] The sequel charts Nate's continued adventures in New York City as he navigates his role in the creation of a major Broadway musical. [33] A Kirkus Reviews starred review called the novel an "Encore performance that will leave them standing in the aisles." [34] Five, Six, Seven, Nate! was chosen as a Junior Library Guild selection, [35] an Amazon Best Book of 2014, and an American Booksellers Association Best Book for Children. [36] Federle won his second Odyssey Honor Book award [29] for the audio book edition. Five, Six, Seven, Nate! was also a 2015 LGBT Children's/Young Adult LAMBDA Literary Award Winner. [2]

Summer Days and Summer Nights (2016, St. Martin's Press): On March 3, 2015 young adult fiction author Stephanie Perkins announced on Twitter [37] that she will be editing a forthcoming YA anthology, Summer Days and Summer Nights, featuring twelve new stories from bestselling authors Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Brandy Colbert, Tim Federle, Lev Grossman, Nina LaCour, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovron, and Jennifer E. Smith. According to a Publishers Weekly announcement, [38] St. Martins Press is set to release the collection in summer 2016. The anthology is a follow-up to Perkins' My True Love Gave To Me: Twelve Holiday Stories , published to acclaim [39] in 2014.

The Great American Whatever (2016, Simon & Schuster): In June 2015 Huffington Post revealed the cover of Federle's forthcoming young adult novel, The Great American Whatever. [40] Federle's first title for young adults is about Quinn Roberts, "a sixteen-year-old smart aleck", [41] who dreams of Hollywood and becoming a professional screenwriter. The novel is receiving advance praise from authors and critics alike, with Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas calling it "original, authentic, engaging". [42] It has also received starred reviews from the publishing trade journals School Library Journal, Booklist , [43] and Kirkus Reviews, who called it "a Holden Caulfield for a new generation." [44] A Huffington Post article about the creation of the book stated that "Federle had a mature audience in mind when he began writing the book, originally titled Quinn, Victorious, five years ago, basing the plot on his personal experiences as seen through characters in their mid-20s." [40] Following the novel's publishing, the Huffington Post called The Great American Whatever "the gay young adult novel you've been waiting for." [45] In November 2016, The Great American Whatever was named a New York Times Notable Children's Book of 2016. [46] The Great American Whatever is one of Kirkus' Best Teen Books of 2016. [47]

[48] Nate Expectations features a cover designed by Rex Bonomelli; the previous two entries in the series, Better Nate Than Ever and Five, Six, Seven, Nate! also received Bonomelli cover refreshes once Nate Expectations hit shelves.

Cocktail guides

Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist (2013, Perseus Books): [49] Federle's first novelty cocktail recipe book, Tequila Mockingbird won the Goodreads Best Cookbook of 2013 Award, [50] and was featured as a clue on Jeopardy! in October 2014. [51] Federle has said the inspiration for the book was his own mother's book club, which "would dissolve into opening wine". [52] In an April 2014 interview with School Library Journal , Federle was quoted as saying, "Tequila Mockingbird came out of a silly one line email to my agent, Brenda Bowen—'Hey, do you think the Urban Outfitters crowd would go for a literary cocktail guide?' I truly wrote the proposal on a whim." [53] The book went on to be sold at Urban Outfitters [54] and ModCloth, [55] among other specialty retailers, and was cited as one of Perseus Book Publisher's leading titles, along with Friday Night Lights and Black Mass, in a September 2015 Wall Street Journal article. [56] According to a December 2014 article in The Atlantic , Tequila Mockingbird has thus far sold over 100,000 copies. [21]

Hickory Daiquiri Dock: Cocktails with a Nursery Rhyme Twist (2014, Perseus Books): The second installment in Federle's cocktail book series, Hickory Daiquiri Dock features twists on popular nursery rhymes, such as "Jack and Coke (and Jill)," "Baa, Baa, Black Russian," and "Old MacDonald Had a Flask." The Tampa Bay Times called it "More fun at a baby shower than a Diaper Genie" [52] and The Atlantic called it "naughty, but never crass," and compared its irreverent take on parenting to the viral phenomenon Go the Fuck to Sleep . [21]

Gone with the Gin: Cocktails with a Hollywood Twist (2015, Perseus Books):Gone with the Gin, published in October 2015, features drinks including "A Sidecar Named Desire," "No Country for Old Fashioneds," and "Bonnie and Mudslide."

The Broadway iteration was nominated for two Drama League Awards, and three Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding Musical for both. [62] [63]
