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.

You probably get this a lot,but honestly,this book changed my life. I can’t understand why it isn’t as popular as TFIOS. It put into words many things I was feeling at the moment, and I feel like Tiny,Will Grayson(s) and Jane understand me better than anyone. It will never cease to amazeme how much you remember what it’s like to be like us. I never though an adult could write with such honesty about being a teenager, let alone a lonely one, or a nerdy one, or an LGTB teenager. So thank you for this amazing book.

Because it is not a movie my dear friend. Movies live in another reality than that of books. The realm of books is a true treat to the few who live within them. It’s a shame how few people know a world of books and bliss exist.

That book was so wonderful. I really enjoy how much I could relate to it and I felt like that book understood what I was going through as a high school student. You describe different people in Tiny Cooper’s life that I can say oh my good that is a kid at school or oh my god that is me or no your kidding that is my Bestfriend. The way you make Tiny and Will Grayson have bumps and bruises in there friendship makes this story so relateable. What the other Will Grayson does at the end of the novel is remarkable and something I will take from this novel and but in my pocket and remember for the rest of my life. Thank you john green for being the only reason I read books!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson is one of the most amazing books out there. It is truly inspiring. I enjoyed it so much that I made my own t-shirt that says, “I’m With Phil Wrayson.” Nobody ever gets it (they all think it should be Will Grayson), and it’s really depressing sometimes. It’s a shame. Anyway, thank you, Mr. Green, for providing all of the nerds of the world with such amazing and inspiring books.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson is and forever will of one of my favorite books. It tells a story of misfortune, loss, friendship, love, and high school insecurity.

I honestly think Hold Me Closer should be a play. The songs are brilliant, and the whole thing is so honest. I bet the Nerdfightaria could make this a thing.

It’s me again! (I’m not a stalker, I swear it…) I have recently finished the story I wrote about in my previous comment. I would greatly appreciate your constructive criticism. I would delight in nothing more than to improve my writings with help from a beloved author that my former and current schools admire greatly. (I recently moved. There are many fans of yours at my current school.) Please email me or reply if you happen to notice my commentary. I love all of your work and I only have one more to go (“Let It Snow”). I truly cannot wait.

(BTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M WITH PHIL WRAYSON!!!!!!!!!!!)

An admiring fan,
Audra Wilson <3

UNITED STATES basketball group was a good unstoppable force throughout the early as well as mid nineties however things possess changed and it is invincibility has become gone. 12 players who’ll represent the united states team are actually announced plus they have large tasks as well as expectations forward. http://www.scorespro.com
