Will Grayson, Will Grayson

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.


Will Grayson, Will Grayson is probably one of the funniest books I have read. Ever. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It’s funny, wholesome, original, rude, and insanely amazing.

I fell in love with every single character from this book. From Will Grayson #1 to Gideon. I especially loved Jane. But I can’t pick one. They’re all so amazingly brilliant. What I liked most about them is that the characters had substance, they weren’t there because they were thrown on a whim to tie up loose ends. Each and every character had a purpose and place.

The premise of the book of course, is incredibly promising, and it doesn’t fail to deliver. It exceeded all expectations. The way their lives intertwine is fascinating to read about, and how their relationships grow and evolve warms your heart.

Really, all I can say about this book is that it’s great. It’s awfully hard to criticize a book you love. All I say is if you haven’t read it, you’re missing out.

Love, -M
