Review: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.
Summary from Goodreads:
Will Grayson meets Will Grayson. One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two strangers are about to cross paths. From that moment on, their world will collide and Iives intertwine.
It's not that far from Evanston to Naperville, but Chicago suburbanites Will Grayson and Will Grayson might as well live on different planets. When fate delivers them both to the same surprising crossroads, the Will Graysons find their lives overlapping and hurtling in new and unexpected directions. With a push from friends new and old - including the massive, and massively fabulous, Tiny Cooper, offensive lineman and musical theater auteur extraordinaire - Will and Will begin building toward respective romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history's most awesome high school musical.
I snagged this book for .50 cents, it was one of the last John Green novels I needed to complete my collection.
I started this book back when it was first published, in 2010, but did not enjoy it and stopped after a chapter. However, this second time I finished the novel and really loved it. My main problem was the even numbered chapters of the second Will Grayson and his lack of grammer. But I got used to the writing style and liked it by the end of the book.
And now I can't wait to get my hands on the new book, Hold Me Closer, which is Tiny Cooper's musical. :)
I recommend checking this out before reading the new novel by Levithan.
