While the story builds to the chance meeting between the Wills, the narrators take on a lineup of secondary characters: parents, girlfriends, boyfriends, and one large boy named Tiny Cooper who ties them all together. Podehl has more to work with in his chapters, bringing Will, Tiny, and their friends to life; much of Andrews’ time is spent reading online chats and back and forth dialogue that will prefaces with “me:” and “her:” or “him:” so he has fewer opportunities to develop those voices. But both narrators infuse their readings with the emotions, attitudes, and sentiments that will be familiar to anyone who knows (or was) a teenager. Blythe Copeland
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.

One of the best performances I've listened to
This is a cleverly written book, and the readers are outstanding. I wish Tiny's musical were real so I could see it now that I've heard some of the songs. The book looks at the problems of love and friendship in a high school setting. However I have to warn conservative readers that one of the book's threads is about homosexual love. It's tastefully done, but it's there. If that's going to bother you, read one of the authors' other books.

Another John Green Hit
John Green writes interesting, funny, flawed teen characters in fantastical, yet simple situations. This book takes on two different boys sharing the name, Will Grayson. With humor and wit, Green writes of falling in love; being gay; and learning to appreciate & celebrate friendships. I really enjoyed this listen and recommend this as a solid young adult crossover for us older folks. If you liked this book and his writing style, dont miss Fault in Our Stars.
