Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
January 20, 2014
As we continue down this path led by an adorable proud nerd, we read Will Grayson, Will Grayson. However, this time, the genius of John Green was joined by David Levithan.
Is there someone out there living a different version of your life? Another BearAllen who loves the sports, only reads harlequin romance novels and wants to be a lawyer... a different author writing the BearAllen story. Will Grayson, Will Grayson examines what happens when two very different people who happened to share a name meet. John Green's Will Grayson was lovable from the start (if somewhat whiny), David Levithan's Will Grayson emo-y angst had to grow on you a bit... but the best character was Tiny Cooper. He is the epitome of holding out faith to wish your circumstances into a better life. Tiny was both totally naive and an inspiration.
"My name is (not) Will Grayson and I appreciate you, Tiny Cooper."
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with . . . Will Grayson. Two teens with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, and culminating in epic turns-of-heart and the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high school stage. Told in alternating voices from two YA superstars, this collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humor that have won them both legions of fans.
