Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan - review
First, as with so many books about teenagers, the teenagers really don't act much like teenagers. It seems most adult authors have forgotten what it was like to be a teenager. I never found myself relating or caring for any of the characters. There are some funny moments that brought a smile to my face. The ending I thought was a bit too contrived and unrealistic.
W ill Grayson, Will Grayson is a book I never expected to love.

One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with. Will Grayson. Two guys 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 award-winning authors - John Green and David Levithan - this unique collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humour that has won both authors legions of fans. John Green writes about one version of the character 'Will Grayson' as does his co-author David Leuithan in a flawless switch between chapters.
The book's narrative is divided evenly between two boys named Will Grayson, with Green having written all of the chapters for one and Levithan having written the chapters for the other, presented in an alternating chapter fashion. One boy is referred to with a capitalized letter at the start of his name, while the other is referred to in all lower case letters. It was the first LGBT -themed young adult novel to make it to that list. In designing the plot for the book, the two authors decided to split it evenly in half. John Green wrote all the odd-numbered chapters capitalized Will Grayson while David Levithan wrote all the even-numbered chapters lower case will grayson. This also held true for the main characters' names, with Levithan choosing the given name and Green the surname.
