    Summary:
    Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a book written by two authors, John Green and David Levithan. The book is written about 2 kids who both are named Will Grayson. One kid is just trying to go through his life without having to be the center of attention. His best friend is Tiny who to Will is considered “the world’s largest person who is really, really gay…” (3). The other Will is a boy who doesn’t have any friends except this girl who he barely likes and this boy who he is in love with that he talks online with. He’s never met the boy before though. The two boys just so happen to meet one night in Chicago at a porn store called Frenchys. Will Grayson is absolutely a wonderful book that ends with Tiny Cooper’s play which was very entertaining.

    Evaluation: This book was VERY fun. I laughed throughout the entire book. John Green and David Levithan both did a very good job of writing this book. The alternating chapters did confuse me a little. I had to sometimes go back and re-read to remind myself what was going on. This is the only book that I would consider reading again. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to laugh.

    Rating: This is 5/5 star book!

    Summary:
    Will Grayson’s best friend Tiny Cooper writes, produces, and stars in an epic autobiographical high school musical, despite his bad habit of falling madly from one boyfriend to the next. will grayson’s best friend Maura just wants to grow closer to him, but he pines for his online flame, Isaac. When the lives of the two Wills intersect, they learn about life, love, and the power of friendship.

    Evaluation:
    I loved the first half of this book, and I liked the second half. This book swings between a 3 and a 4. John Green works his magic to illuminate both platonic and romantic forms of adolescent love. The book features moments of greatness where the dialogue reminded me of a later day Breakfast Club, but in the end, I felt like the authors tried to do too much.
