Books before food (and any sort of comfortable life).

Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Summary: One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical. Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both them legions of faithful fans.

Okay, first off, I want you to know this book is gay. Yes, you read that correctly: gay. Not “stupid” gay, but  “gay” gay. Guys, you will not like this. This is not a softcore lesbian porno. This is a book about gay people with a few straight ones thrown in there. I, personally, love it. Gay guys are “fabulous” as Tiny Cooper would say. Haha. No, there is no gay guy sex, ladies. Just gay people trying to fit into society [and doing it pretty well actually]. This book is funny and witty and will have you on the floor laughing; I know I was. It gives you some insight on many issues we face in life: homosexuality, depression, rejection, loss of friendships, and a few more. Even if you’re completely turned off by gay guys, I still recommend giving this book a shot. It “Will” have you laughing in no time. Lol bad pun, get it? “Will”? Will Grayson? … Never mind.

    I’ve been meaning to go out and get that book. I liked David’s writing in Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, but John Green is one of my all-time favorite writers. I can only imagine how sweet, funny, and insightful this book must be. Great post!

      It’s amazing! The ending is a little “umm… okay.” just to warn you. I know I would have liked a heads up. Lol. This book is everything you can expect from John Green and more. Thank you, by the way. :]
