What if your oldest, wildest, only best friend started writing a musical about your life...and it made you look like a joke?
What if the girl you didn't think you were interested in started being interested in you?
And who is this other guy called Will Grayson?
The other Will Grayson:
What if you are technically depressed?
What if you're in love with someone you've never met?
And what's the story with the guy walking around with your name?
‘I don’t know who or what I loved most about the Wills and their world, but this is one of my top three reads of the year. It has everything I devour in a novel: heart, humour and dialogue I’d kill to have written.’Melina Marchetta
‘Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a bold and honest book…Like Tiny Cooper, this novel is big, crazy and lovable. Like the two W/wills, it seeks self-understanding.’Weekend Australian
‘Will Grayson’s having one of those days in this hilarious story about teen brooding and acceptance.’Girlfriend
‘A wonderfully warm, innovative and intelligent novel about friendship and forgiveness.’Adelaide Advertiser
‘a slick, funny, sensitive book…Green and Levithan keep their literary plates spinning—with style…Engaging, frequently hilarious reading.’Sunday Age
‘This novel taught me an important lesson—you don’t have to be a young adult to enjoy a young adult book…a funny touching and thoroughly entertaining novel, regardless of whether you are 14 or 40.’Weekend Press, Dominion Post Weekend, Waikato Times
‘A terrific high-energy tale of teen love, lust, intrigue, anger, pain and friendship.’Booklist
‘Powerful, thought-provoking, funny, moving and unique.’School Library Journal
‘Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a complete romp…the novel is so tightly woven that it begins to feel miraculous…so funny, rude and original that by the time flowers hit the stage after Hold Me Closer, even the musical-averse will cheer.’New York Times
‘will have readers simultaneously laughing, crying and singing at the top of their lungs.’Kirkus Reviews
