Will Grayson, Will Grayson [REPACK]
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. The only plot they decided on together was the fact that the two characters would meet at some point in the novel and that their meeting would have a tremendous effect on their lives. After this decision, they separately wrote the first chapter for their half and then shared them with each other. After sharing, they then "knew immediately it was going to work", as stated by Levithan.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson
Readers will certainly get caught up in the book's fun premise -- and even find themselves moved by this clever collaboration about coming-of-age in a gay-friendly big city. Tiny Cooper is a great character; his heart of gold -- and his amazing performance -- are truly unforgettable. Plus, who doesn't love a happy ending? Even if it's not exactly believable...
The other Will Grayson, who will be Will, is a classic loner type. Although he is seen as almost robotic in his day-to-day interactions, we see his emotions flow when he logs on to his computer at the end of the day to chat with his over-the-internet boyfriend Isaac.
While will grayson and Will Grayson are the focal point of the novel, Tiny Cooper teaches readers most of the lessons and themes hiding inside the pages, especially one of self-acceptance. Being a tad bit big-boned myself, Tiny really made me love the parts of myself that I, at one point or another, thought were unlovable. Tiny really showed how awesome and amazing I am, and that being who I am is a great thing. I think that Tiny can do this for other readers as well.
So whether you are here for the laughs or here to be introspective, this book will draw you in with its interesting characters and creative style. With its alternating chapters, you will never get bored with your Will/will. You will be turning the pages non-stop, the pages that capture their messy and intriguing lives.
At the same time, the narration follows will grayson, a boy also living in Chicago and writing in all lowercase letters. From the very first sentence, it becomes evident that will struggles with depression and other possible mental illnesses. Moreover, he spends most of his time online, texting a boy named Isaac, who's supposedly from Ohio, but the reality of the situation is that will falls in love with a boy who doesn't exist.
One crucial night, after Will was refused into a concert due to the inauthenticity of his fake ID, he decides to go into a porn shop, which is where the two boys cross paths. will realizes that Isaac isn't real, and that Maura, a girl that he began to consider a friend, was pretending to be Isaac online. When the concert ends, Tiny and Jane meet up with the two Wills. Immediately, Tiny starts liking will. As the night progresses, Will and Jane share a kiss only to find out that Jane wants to get back with her ex-boyfriend; at the same time, the two boys (will and Tiny) end up kissing in the park. By the next day, they are already dating. As a result, Tiny makes the decision that he should rewrite his play to be more about love - a symbol that is also present in a conversation between Jane and Will at the same time, discussing Schrödinger's cat, evolving into Jane deciding to give Will a chance.
The novel progresses and will becomes overwhelmed with Tiny and his flamboyancy. This ends up in their break up and an argument between him and Will. By the end of the day, however, they manage to sort it out and admit just how much they truly care about each other and their friendship. The novel ends with the opening night of Tiny's play, where will grayson shows up to reassure Tiny by finding each Will Grayson in the local area and asking them to show their appreciation of the boy. All levels out at the end, and the two Wills find happiness in their own lives.
Will Grayson is struggling with love, life, and friendship, specifically his best friend Tiny Cooper. will grayson is struggling with the will to live, his undying love for his boyfriend isaac, and his sort-of-friendship with maura, who wants to date him.
That quote stuck out to me because I was the same! This book was very popular in my area, but what really irritated me was that a lot of parents were letting their 10 and 11 year old kids read the book, which promotes lots of poor life choices (drinking until you pass out, fake ids, sneaking out, meeting internet strangers for sex) as having very positive outcomes. So that plus the lack of capitalization caused this book to upset me. If you want I will send you my copy, I doubt I will read it again.
An ill-timed storm on Christmas Eve buries the residents of Gracetown under multiple feet of snow and causes quite a bit of chaos.

Over the next three days, one girl takes a risky shortcut with an adorable stranger, three friends set out to win a race to the Waffle House (and the hash brown spoils), and the fate of a teacup pig falls into the hands of a lovesick barista.
