will grayson, will grayson is not for the faint of heart. If you like your teen lit clean and unchallenging, please do not choose this book for your Saturday afternoon.
Will Grayson is kind of your average high school boy, though maybe on the dorkier-side of average, except that he has a BIGGER-than-average best friend. Will's best friend, Tiny Cooper, is larger than large and gayer than gay. And he is aiming to write, produce, and star in his own high school musical, Tiny Dancer: The Tiny Cooper Story, (and co-starring Phil Wrayson). Will Grayson has two interests in life: good underground music and Jane (maybe); and two rules in life: Shut up. and Don't Care.
will grayson has never heard of Will Grayson or Tiny Cooper. when he's not online with Isaac, will spends most of his time trying to make sure that his best friend Maura knows that he's not interested in her that way without hurting her feelings -- more because he has no other friends than because he cares overly about Maura's feelings. will grayson likes almost nothing, least of all himself.
When lives collide, new worlds open for everyone involved. Filled with heartbreak, heart-to-hearts, and breakthroughs, this story is mostly about love, but not like you've ever seen it before. Recommended to all older high school readers -- gay or straight, big or small, boy or girl. John Green and David Levithan are a dream team.
