Will Grayson, Will Grayson
David Levithan. The book's narrative is divided evenly between two boys named Will Grayson, with Green having written all of the chapters for one, and Levithan having written the chapters for the other which is presented in an alternating chapter fashion. The novel debuted on the New York Times children's best-seller list after its release and remained there for three weeks. 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. 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.

W ill Grayson, Will Grayson is a book I never expected to love. In fact, it is a book I never even expected to like. But my love of John Green drew me towards it, and I'd left it untouched in my bag on holiday until I had no more books left to read. When I finished the book, I presumed well-spoken and capital-letter-using Will Grayson was written by John Green and the other, more depressed Will Grayson was written by David Levithan. But surely it shows just how great Green's characterisation is in that he is able to fully immerse himself in his protagonists to the point where his readers don't even recognise him behind the words.
First, as with so many books about teenagers, the teenagers really don't act much like teenagers. It seems most adult authors have forgotten what it was like to be a teenager. I never found myself relating or caring for any of the characters. There are some funny moments that brought a smile to my face. The ending I thought was a bit too contrived and unrealistic.
David and I became friends after he read Looking for Alaska several months before it was published. He wrote me an email; I responded I was a fan of his books ; it went from there. Months later, he proposed this idea for a book about two boys with the same name. We talked a lot about the actual mechanics of those chapters, and where characters needed to be when and that kind of thing. It is in fact around the corner from where my office was in Chicago when David and I started working on the book. And he knew who Tiny Cooper was, and so on.
