will grayson, will grayson by john green and david levithan


I love John Green's work! Really. I. Do. I read Looking for Alaska the night I landed my first young adult librarian job, so it holds a special place in my heart. I have been a permanent rider on the John Green train ever since, pushing him on young people like some exotic irresistible candy. will grayson, will grayson is especially special - David Levithan wrote the even-numbered chapters and John Green wrote the odd ones. Their two voices combine to create this sweet/sad story about two guys (and eventually a large community of people) named Will Grayson, both trying to figure out who they are.
