One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two strangers cross paths. Two teens with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, culminating in heroic turns-of-heart and the most epic musical ever to grace the high-school stage.
I've been saving this book for a long time as it's the last John Green book I haven't read. Instead of being sad when it was over, I was thrilled because I'd found a new author I was excited about - David Levithan.
I didn't think it was possible, but I loved Levithan's chapters more than Green's. I know. I was shocked too.
The chatty insightful narrative hooked me at once and I was in. I recognised Green's style straight away and was pulled into the familiar ebb and flow of his writing. I thought it was odd how easy it was for me to pick out which of the Will Grayson's was Green's, but that just meant that both styles were so different which is what this book needed.
There's not really much I can say about this book other than I loved it. It was funny and deep and beautiful, but all Green's books are. I've come to expect that.
All I can say is that I felt like I wasn't reading this book. I just jumped right in and lived there.
Would I recommend it? Yes
Would I look up the author? Yes. I've read all of John Green's books now but I'm definitely going to be looking up David Levithan.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson was funny, insightful and beautiful, but what else did I expect from two masters of YA?
