Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

This collaborative novel brings together two people both improbably named Will Grayson: one straight, best friend of Tiny (soooo not- think Refrigerator Perry) who is the most “out” gay student you have met in a long time; the other Will is also gay, but having a difficult time dealing with it.

Told in alternating chapters of the two very different Wills, who ultimately answer the questions “what is a friend? What is love?”

You will love this funny, quirky novel, but be careful of the sexual language- inappropriate for middle school, although this is needed there.

  1. Loved this book, especially in audio format. You just have to hear Tiny sing songs from his musical! Yes, it has cussing and edgy content, but I really wanted to cheer at the end.
