Will Grayson Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

Will Grayson is floating, basically, through high school, not caring too much, overshadowed by his best friend Tiny Cooper. will grayson is gay, depressed, angry, and carrying on a year-long long-distance internet relationship with someone who has deceived him. One night, in a porn shop of all places, Will Grayson meets will grayson, and neither of them will ever be the same.

When I first heard that John Green and David Levithan were joining forces to write a YA novel, I thought my head was going to explode from excited anticipation. I love both of these authors separately, and it turns out that I love it when the write together, too. I have a list of fictional things that I wish were real (the Dracula puppet musical in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Man Inside Me by Tobias Funke, most of Troy McClure's films), but I would really love to see Tiny Dancer/Hold Me Closer.

Find it at IndieBound.

Read it with:
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore
How Beautiful the Ordinary edited by Michael Cart
The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton


  1. Oh yeah, I'd totally read The Man Inside Me too. Also, I <3 David Levithan, though I've just recently discovered him. I think I'll check this one out!

  2. Have you read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist? That's what got me hooked on David Levithan (and Rachel Cohn's Gingerbread book series.) John Green is definitely someone to read, too - Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns.

  3. Yep, that's what got me hooked on him too! Um and Abundance of Katherines.

    I noticed a lot of Ann M. Martin's books are dedicated to him. I think they might be friends.

  4. There's one book (How they Met and Other stories? I think it's a short story collection, but I could be way off) where he thanks Cary Retlin, and I just went "Whaaat?" He's an editor at Scholastic, too.
