One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with . . . Will Grayson. Two teens with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, and culminating in epic turns-of-heart and the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high school stage. Told in alternating voices from two YA superstars, this collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humor that have won them both legions of fans.
From Levithan: I’ve always been fascinated with this kind of duality, since one of my best friends is named David Leventhal. I knew I didn’t want to write both characters myself, so I asked my friend John Green if he’d be interested in being the other character. Now, almost five years later, the book is coming out into the world. One Will Grayson (John’s) is scared of emotion and scarred by love. The other will grayson (mine) is angry, bitter, and, deep down inside, really wanting to be in love and in life. The two meet in, of all places, a porn store. And Will’s best friend, Tiny, entirely steals the show. I won’t say anything more than that, but I hope you really enjoy it.
