Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
This is a young adult contemporary novel (Rated PG-13)
(Five Tiny Hearts)
Book Summary
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.

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 of them legions of faithful fans.
My Review
First let me say I’m not a huge John Green fan anymore based on comments he made about Veronica Roth’s book (allegiant) and how readers can’t have an opinion about the ending. And if you read my review of the book, you know my opinion and you’ll have read my alternative ending.
However, audible had a sale, and what can I say. I picked this up. In fact, I picked up his book Paper Towns in a similar sale but I haven’t read it yet.
Anyway, this book was filled with all kinds of awesome. Easily the best book I've read all year. It had a great message and the characters were flushed out with all their flaws. This was believable and not in a fairy tale way. Things weren't easy and not made out to be. Really good. Laughed out loud several times and nearly cried others.
Awesome book.  Excellent narration by both narrators. Tiny Dancer's musical songs stole the show. Summer of Gay was easily the best of the lot. Love love love this book.
I enjoyed every second. God I might have to give up my self-imposed ban of John Green books. UGH.
I highly recommend. If you don’t like M/M romance, this book isn’t for you. But this book isn’t about the two Will’s getting together. They each have their own struggles and one is straight and the other isn’t. And that’s all the spoilers you’ll get from me.
Audio Review
MacLeond Andrews and Nick Podehl nailed the narration of the book. The singing was also good. Thoroughly enjoyed.
