Book Review - Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Since I went crazy over the last book I read by John Green, I couldn't wait to give another one a try. Back when Will Grayson, Will Grayson first came out, most of the girls on a book club site I visit raved about it. It's very rare that this book club is wrong about a book, so I added it to my "to be read" shelf on goodreads but haven't gotten around to actually reading it until now.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
Release Date: April 6, 2010
Pages: 310

Summary: One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.

I'll just start out by completely gushing about how fabulous this book was. If you haven't read it, you need to go to the store and buy it right now. After you're done reading this post, of course!

John Green and David Levithan have created the most interesting and funny character by the name of Tiny Cooper. Within minutes of starting the book I wanted to be his best friend. Tiny is the link between Will Grayson and Other Will Grayson, one being his friend and the latter being a love interest.

The book is expertly put together, with all of the events culminating during Tiny's play (don't worry, the play is a big part of the whole book, so that's not a spoiler). I'm so glad I purchased this book because I can see it being one I'll read again and again.
