Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

This great book was co-written by two super amazing YA writers: John Green (Waiting for Alaska and Paper Towns) and David Levithan (Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohn and Boy Meets Boy).  This hilarious story is about two different teens named Will Grayson (each written in alternating chapters by one of the two writers) who end up meeting through a series of weird circumstances at a porn store called Frenchy’s in Chicago.  Both Will Grayson’s have tons of issues and seem to work at making themselves miserable.  However, by the end of the story, both have learned some about themselves, each other, life and love.  A huge shout out to character Tiny Cooper, a wonderfully flamboyant 300 lb. gay football player and musical theater maestro extraordinaire.  I hope they decide and write a whole book about him!!!  His humanity, sense of humor and lust for life won me over the first time I met him in the book.

Obviously, I highly recommend this book to all readers, especially fans of Green and Levithan.

Here’s an online interview with John Green you can see from home.  As part of it, he even reads the first few pages of the book to us.
