Review of Will Grayson Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

imageWill Grayson Will Grayson is an unusual book by John Green and David Levithan about two teenage boys called Will Grayson who accidentally meet one night. The Will Graysons have very different lives but once they meet the lives cross over and friends and discoveries are made about what it is to be Will Grayson.

imageI won’t spoil the plot here because the book has lots of little twists and pieces of fun that I wouldn’t deprive you of finding for yourself. What I will say is that this book has a really good look at what it means to be a teenager discovering your own personality and what you really want and who you really are. Anyone can read this book, at any age and still find the formation of these characters interesting.

John and David began this book by both writing a section about someone called Will Grayson without having any idea what the other was writing. This makes sure that the two Will’s have entirely their own lives and problems and yet it really says something about the book that these two actually have a lot to say in common. Their problems are different but there’s a craving for friendship and for love that transcends their age and their situations.

This book is funny, sweet and draws you into their world. And it even ends with a musical. Read it.image
