Will Grayson, Will Grayson (Book Review)

Authors: John Green, David Levithan


Will Grayson meets Will Grayson. One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two strangers are about to cross paths. From that moment on, their world will collide and lives intertwine.
It’s not that far from Evanston to Naperville, but Chicago suburbanites Will Grayson and Will Grayson might as well live on different planets. When fate delivers them both to the same surprising crossroads, the Will Graysons find their lives overlapping and hurtling in new and unexpected directions. With a push from friends new and old – including the massive, and massively fabulous, Tiny Cooper, offensive lineman and musical theater auteur extraordinaire – Will and Will begin building toward respective romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most awesome high school musical.

Get the book: Will Grayson, Will Grayson


This book had me confused at the beginning, laughing at the mid-part, and crying in the end.

For a music lover like me, I found it hard to relate at the band references and musical references from the book. It almost discouraged me to read on… to put down the book and read a different one. But I told myself that I’m gonna be missing the fun of the remaining pages… and I believe it’s just having different cultures, you know the East-West sides, and different music preferences. But I really tried to comprehend and read more and then I just found myself smiling, giggling, and laughing.

Everything was going well- love the story, plot, conversations… but what threw me off was the story somehow became more like Will Grayson, Tiny. Don’t get me wrong. I love Tiny and his character but the book was supposed to be about the two Will Graysons. 

As much as I want more of the WGs to converse with each other, the authors wrapped the whole book with a really inspiring and sweet ending. I never thought that the musical would make it to 2 chapters and be amazing. I loved what the other Will Grayson did for Tiny. That musical was so inspiring.

Friendships can be fixed, so can relationships. 💙

So yeah. Overall, I loved this book. You have to read this if you haven’t already. 😊 If you have, comment down below your book recommendations or books that have the same message that you loved.

Lots of firsts for me. My first John Green and David Levithan book. First male to male romance. First time reading a musical. And I freaking loved it… even if they messed up my emotions. ☺
