You can read the Goodreads summary here.

This is one of those books that has been on my radar for quite some time, but it's always been one of those books where I think, "I'll get that to later... eventually... someday."  I knew my library had it and yesterday I finally picked it up and, surprisingly, read it all last night.

Warning: This is one of those books you'll pick up and then stay up to three a.m. to finish. 

Will Grayson, Will Grayson (hereto after known as WG,WG) follows the stories of two separate young men, both named Will Grayson.  The chapters alternate points of view.  The first WG is struggling with his group of friends after committing some social faux pas; meanwhile, his best friend Tiny is producing a play for their school based on his own, very gay life.  The second WG is a loner from another school district who also has few friends, is gay, and is in love with his online boyfriend Isaac.  But disaster strikes when he goes to meet his boyfriend offline for the first time.

I LOVED this book!  It was funny, witty, and charming.  I absolutely loved the alternating points of view in this case.  Not only did that keep the story fresh, but it kept me reading, wanting to know what would happen next to my favorite WG.  When I first started WG,WG, I was most intrigued by the first Will's story.  But as the novel went on, I was really drawn in by the second Will's story and that's the one I was most invested in by the end of the novel, which ended... very... well you'll have to see for yourself because this is a must read book.

It's a five star book, folks.  This book was published in 2010, so you very well may have already read this, but if you haven't hopped on the Will Grayson, Will Grayson train or the John Green train yet, it's time you do.

  1. I just read a book by John Green (An Abundance of Katherines) and it definitely whetted my appetite to read more by him!


I enjoy reading each and every comment, thanks for leaving them!
