Goodreads Description: 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 both them both legions of faithful fans.

My Thoughts: This book was by far one of the most entertaining books I have read in a while. At first I was a little put off by the way that David Levithan writes his parts, without capitalization, but I got used to it.

The one problem I had was this: What public high school would provide funding to a student who has written his own musical so that he can perform that musical with a cast he put together himself to represent people in the school. Certainly not the school I went to.

I would have liked to have seen what actually happened after the musical. Personally, I think will grayson (the non-capitalized one, yes) is a good friend to Tiny, but he shouldn’t date him. I think Gideon would be a better choice. But, Will Grayson and Jane do work well together.

I would enjoy reading more collaborations of John Green and David Levithan, if they’d all be this entertaining.
