Review: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

As alluded to by the title, Will Grayson, Will Grayson is about two teenage boys named Will Grayson who one day meet out of fate in downtown Chicago. In the book, each Will’s perspective is written by alternating between chapters. One Will Grayson has a huge friend, ironically named Tiny Cooper. This Will Grayson takes a liking to Tiny’s friend Jane. Meanwhile, the other “will” (who only writes in lowercase letters), is in love with his online boyfriend, Isaac, which doesn’t work out. In a surprising turn of events, Tiny and will end up dating. As their lives begin to intertwine, each Will Grayson struggles to find his place in the world. Not only is the story revolving around the Will Graysons, but there is a lot of emphasis on Tiny Cooper, who is trying to write an amazing musical about his life.

This novel, is full of lots of drama, with some exaggerated character types, which make the novel a fun and interesting read. It’s very well written and easy to distinguish between the two Will Graysons. I really enjoyed the plot line and how there was a more modern view taken on it. I’d recommend Will Grayson, Will Grayson to any teenager who likes other novels written by John Green or any teenager in general.
