Will Grayson, Will Grayson

John Green creates such amazing characters and when you add the talents of David Levithan you find yourself falling in love with the book.  Will Grayson, Will Grayson is the story about two different boys living two very different lives who happen to meet in the same windy city and are both named Will Grayson.  On a chance encounter, the two strike up a conversation which leads to friendship, new adventures (at times musical adventures) and a whole new path.

I really like that this story is written by two authors and then told from two different perspectives.  This writing style gave you insight on both of the Wills and the ups and downs of their lives.  The characters are incredibly realistic, it feels like you know them.  I was impressed with how well the authors were able to capture the humor, depression, and the nerdiness of growing up.   I also liked that Green and Levithan continually added plot twists.  I never knew where the story was headed or how it would end.  This is a great YA contemporary novel that has you laughing out loud sometimes,  as well as contemplating the trials and tribulations of being a teen.
