Will Grayson, Will Grayson

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.

Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both them legions of faithful fans.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson debuted at #3 on the New York Times bestseller list for children’s chapter books, the first book starring gay characters ever to appear on the list. WGWG has also been published in Australia and is forthcoming in many countries, including Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands.

So the story is about gay love?!

There are two different people telling two different stories that happen to intertwine. So yes and no, One Will Grayson is straight and the other Will Grayson is gay. IT’s great ^.^ John Green wrote the straight side and David Levithan wrote the gay side.

Good exclusive company exhibitions are okay for discussing details, but they will never substitute face-to-face conferences. find here

At first it took a while to get used to the two Wills plotline but once you did you dove head first into the story. It carried you on a wave of sunshine and cloud. It was a brilliant read from start to finish. Wow

Beautiful novel I will say that. At the beginning you would think the story is of one Will Grayson, until a few chapters later you start seeing them as two different people. One with a homosexual best friend and the other as a homosexual.

Hi, my name’s Leticia and I’m from Brazil.
I just read the book and I’d like to ask some questions, like “what about Will and Jane, or Other Will and Tiny?”. I loved the book and I’m so curious to know the answers.
Thank you.

Thinking about all the different thngis you can do with the money your normally spend on cable will make your head spin. People just accept it as a normal utility bill, and it doesn’t have to be.

The fact that Tiny Dancer hasn’t been made into a real musical yet is an actual disadvantage to the state of mankind.


Joselynn. July 14, 2014 at 7:53 pm

wowzZa. Ok so I actually kind of thought that Will Grayson and o.w.g were the same people but in different dimensions. If I hadn’t gone through this section, I would’ve probably believed that throughout the whole book. Even though, I mean, two different dimensions and same situations but different outcomes does seem rad. Now I feel stupid. Although, I haven’t had much experience with books, especially more than one author in one book (that truly is madness. I never knew that was possible!) but anyway, this book truly is great. :-)

Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a great book.
The ending, however, did confuse me.
What happen to Maura? What happened to her and Will’s friendship?
If you have an answer, please reply back?

I just wanted to say how brilliant you are and I really loved Will Grayson,Will Grayson. I wonder did you come up with “Tiny Cooper”or did David? He’s fantastic and so are the two Will Graysons. I also read Let it Snow and every winter I read it again. I write short stories, my friend says I’m good at it. I hope that one day I’ll write a full book that I can be proud of, nobody even needs to know it exists. It will just be mine.

P.S I’m dutch Well I come from Belgium (which is next to the Netherlands ; we speak the same language)
