Recommended by Kitsilano children’s librarian April (who also passed me The Reformed Vampire Society), Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a touching, up front book with humour and great characters.
The original Will Grayson is best friends with the fabulous and huge Tiny Cooper who is both a football player and very, very, very flamboyant. Tiny Cooper is writing and producing a musical about his own life and Will is dismayed by the character Gil Wrayson. While Will Grayson is quiet, Tiny is exuberant, self centred, dramatic, and often embarrassing. Long time best friends, both teens struggle with friendships and romantic relationships.
The other Will Grayson is depressed, the only thing keeping him afloat is his online romance with Isaac. In a chance encounter in Chicago, the two Wills meet.
