Annotation: Meet Will Grayson, a quite average teen who lives in Chicago. Now, meet another Will Grayson, who lives in a suburb of Chicago and who is just as ordinary. Now, by some strange coincidence, both Will Graysons somehow end up in the least likely place either Will Grayson ever expected to end up. Will the universe explode if their worlds intersect, or will they just learn the hard way that love is trial- error- trial- it?
Recommend: Yes
How would you convince someone to read the book: I would tell them that is one of the few books that I have ever read that truly manages to capture a love story without making me want to vomit.
Compelling Aspect of the Book: I found that the most compelling part was that it was very real, not in the this-could-possibly-happen-in-real-life-maybe way, but in the this-probably-happens-every-single-day way. That doesn't happen a lot with books, in my experience.
Did you finish: Yes
Were you disappointed with the book at all: I finished this book in a day and a half. I only stopped reading the first day because it was really late. Then I obsessed over it the next day.
Did the cover tempt you and/or reflect the contents of the book: The cover is definitely awesome, and I loved it. It is really psychedelic. It did not really tell you anything about the contents of the book, apart from the fact that it is totally awesome.
