Overall, I thought that Will Grayson, Will Grayson had outstandingly vivid and different characters; however, I just didn't think it was a gripping read. It felt a little like the two authors were having a tennis rally, bouncing words between them without anything really happening.

Synopsis

Two award-winning and New York Times–bestselling author join forces for a collaborative novel of awesome proportions.

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 them both legions of faithful fans.

★“Will have readers simultaneously laughing, crying and singing at the top of their lungs.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review 
 
“It is such a good book. [Green and Levithan] are two of the best writers writing today.” —NPR’sThe Roundtable

About John Green

John Green attended a boarding school not unlike Alaska’s Culver Creek. After graduating from college in 2000, he worked as a chaplain at a children’s hospital. John’s experiences with patients and their families during intense crises solidified his desire to write for teens about the challenge of confronting loss. John works for Booklist and is also a commentator for National Public Radio’s national afternoon newsmagazine, “All Things Considered,” and Chicago’s NPR affiliate, WBEZ. “Nick,” about John’s experiences as a chaplain, appeared on “Driveway Moments” a “best-of” two-CD set, which NPR released in August 2004. John was recently featured in the Tribune’s RedEye edition and on television as one of Chicago’s “Fabulous 20somethings.” He lives in New York City.

I would rate this book an 9/10, with the only fault being the beginning. I would recommend this book to over 12s as it has unsuitable content. Overall I really enjoyed reading it and will without a doubt read it again very soon.

Basically, the story's goal is to normalise homosexuality and to love yourself for who you are. I would rate this book eight out of ten and would recommend it to teens, as it can be quite rude and harder to understand in some places.

I'm so happy I read Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Reading it was an absolutely fantastic decision, and would be for anyone, gay or straight, because that's not even why you should read the book or the main focus of it. It's a beautiful and almost reckless but sweet story of emotion.
