Product description

This is the New York Times bestselling novel from John Green, the author of multi-million bestseller The Fault in Our Stars, and David Levithan. One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with...Will Grayson. Two guys 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 award-winning authors - John Green (author of The Fault in Our Stars) and David Levithan (author of Boy Meets Boy) - this unique collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humour that has won both authors legions of fans. "Funny, rude and original". (New York Times Book Review). "Will have readers simultaneously laughing, crying and singing at the top of their lungs". (Kirkus Reviews). "This novel has serious buzz". (EntertainmentWeekly.com). John Green is an award-winning, New York Times bestselling author whose many accolades include the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and the Edgar Award. With his brother, Hank, John is one half of the Vlogbrothers (youtube.com/vlogbrothers), one of the most popular online video projects in the world. You can follow him on Twitter @realjohngreen. John lives with his wife and children in Indianapolis, Indiana. David Levithan (davidlevithan.com) is a New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of many books for teens, including Boy Meets Boy, Every Day, Invisibility (with Andrea Cremer), and (with Rachel Cohn) Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. He is also an editorial director/VP at Scholastic US, where he founded their Push imprint.

Customer reviews

By Maryam H 19 Mar 2013 5

I'm having such trouble writing this review without being a huge fan girl. I always have this problem when I read a really good book - I can't wait to tell everybody about it, get really excited and then start gushing everywhere about how amazing this book is without actually saying anything of significance. This review probably won't make any sense...



Above all I adored the characters in this book. Every single one of them. They were all different, they all played their part in the story and they all developed in some way or another by the end of the book. They were really well rounded characters that I felt I grew to knew over the course of the book. I loved how relatable they were and how they all had their individual flaws from not being confident enough to speak out to defend others to pushing people away because they feel they don't deserve them. They didn't stand still long enough for me to ever get bored of them and for those characters who did something wrong, it was always acknowledged which I loved.



The plot was perfect for characters still in high school. It was all about identity and growing up like everyone does during those years. Everybody can relate to this story and learn from it in some way or another.



I also loved how depression was explained in this book. For someone who has experience with it, I loved reading what comes after diagnosis and not just dealing with the start. A lot of people have to live with it for a long time so to have one of the main characters mention it quite a bit here and there was really refreshing.



As usual I thought John Green's writing was amazing. It was the first time I had read something by David Levithan though and I thought he made another amazing Will Grayson. I loved the differences in the writing and how it reflected the personalities of the actual characters.



Overall I love this book and it's definitely one I want to come back and read again and again. If you haven't read anything by John Green please give one of his books a go because you won't regret it. As for David Levithan, I can't wait to pick up another one of his books. The two authors complemented each other really well.
