Summary: This book is written in two perspectives: Will Grayson the heterosexual star athlete and will grayson who is a gay teen having an online relationship with another member of the Gay- Straight Alliance. On one fated night they are brought together and are stunned to find that they have the same name. Shocked by this, the boys talk and realize how different but similar they really are.

Personal connection: I was recommended this book and high school, and this is what got me interested in the author, John Green. I thought it was interesting to give the two characters the same name and then give them two sexualities and views about the world.

Class use: I would recommend this book to any teenagers but especially ones maybe questioning their sexuality or who don't fully understand those that are questioning themselves. We could read the book as a class and discuss the importance of tolerance and respecting others of different sexual orientations. ( )

The book Will Grayson,Will Grayson was an amazing and funny book. I loved all the drama and comedy that was in the book. My favorite part in the book was Tiny'splay that was at the end of the book. I thought it was very funny and very well written and i loved the song that Tiny sang in it. There was so much detail,drama,and comedy throughout the entire book. I would definatly love to re-read this book again because of how much i loved reading it the first time.

A wonderfully campy, sweet, romantic gesture in the spectacular style that readers have come to expect from these two YA masters.

Two superstar authors pair up and really deliver the goods, dishing up a terrific high-energy tale of teen love, lust, intrigue, anger, pain, and friendship threaded with generous measures of comedy and savvy counsel.

...complete with honest language, interesting characters, and a heartfelt, gritty edge, this quirky yet down-to-earth collaboration by two master YA storytellers will keep readers turning pages.

First words
When I was little, my dad used to tell me, “Will, you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose."
Tiny Cooper is not the world's gayest person, and he is not the world's largest person, but I believe he may be the world's largest person who is really, really gay, and also the the world's gayest person who is really, really large.
There are probably some girls who don’t want guys to show up at their house randomly on a Tuesday night with questions about Edwin Schrodinger. I am sure such girls exist. But they don’t live at my house.
