I would give this book 10/10 stars because it normalizes gay romantic relationships. There’s still a tangible prejudice against gay people so I think this book contains a great message for people of all ages. Plus this book is hilarious as per usual when it comes to John Green. (more)

Will Grayson may be in the title of this book (twice), but
it’s Tiny Cooper who will steal your heart! This story of
two different guys named Will Grayson is told through
alternating chapters by two awesome young adult authors.
Also there is a musical. About Tiny Cooper. Who is great.

"the bean is this really stupid sculpture that they did for millenium park — i guess at the millenium — which originally had another name, but everyone started calling it the bean and the name stuck. it’s basically this big reflective metal bean that you can walk under and see yourself all distorted. i mean, i’ve been here before on school trips, but i’ve never been here with someone as huge as tiny before. usually it’s hard to locate yourself in the reflection, but this time i know i’m the wavy twig standing next to the big blob of humanity."

tiny doesn't just sing these words - he belts them. it's like a parade coing out of his mouth. i have no doubt the words travel over lake michigan to most of canada and on to the north pole. the farmers of saskatchewan are crying. santa is turning to mrs. claus and saying 'what the fuck is that?'
People act like it`s the most important thing humans do, but come on. How can our sentient fucking lives revolve around something slugs can do. -straight Will Grayson
