This collection was beautiful and touching. I'm very finicky when it comes to love stories and so I was a little wary coming into this collection. Fortunately, Levithan provided a perfect combination of idealism and authenticity that satisfied both my inner realist and my inner hopeless romantic.

This beautiful collection really lives up to its title. The editors' dedication to showcasing more than one narrative of the queer experience is undeniable throughout this collection as is their dedication to sharing emotive, authentically written works. While there were so many aspects of this anthology which I loved, I was most impressed with the the willingness to include pieces that dealt with religion and queerness in more than just negative ways. As an affirming Christian, it was beautiful to see a queer work actively speak against the forced dichotomy between queerness and Christianity.… (mais)

"it's like, you know how sometimes you see a really sexy baby? wait, that sounds f***ed up."

This quote is almost all you need to know of this book. It's ridiculous. It's hilarious. It made me laugh out loud many, many times with how zany the characters are. It also contains tons of foul language. Like, an inordinate amount of swearing. This is the kind of book you get censored from a friend.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson alternates between two narrators named Will Grayson. The first Will (capitalized Will) has two rules: don't care too much, and shut up. He will adore a girl and flirt with her, but he will not kiss her or ask her out because, oh wait, he doesn't actually like her. That's against the rules. will #2, who doesn't use capitals, is clinically depressed and gay. He is perfectly okay with being gay, he just doesn't feel like letting anyone know. Anyone, that is, except for his online boyfriend Isaac. He's never heard Isaac's voice but has definitely been talking to him long enough to know that he is really a teenage boy.
The Wills run into each other by a crazy coincidence one night. Both of them become caught up with First Will's [quite a bit]larger-than-life and immensely gay best friend Tiny Cooper and his magnum opus- a musical about how gay he is. This book really spares no stereotypes, no truths, no gayness. Somehow there's enough openly gay guys in Tiny's high school for him to fall in love with a new one at least once a week. The whole idea of being a homosexual teen is treated humorously, sensitively, and mockingly all at once. The book sort of pokes fun at those who would be okay with being teased, and also respects the frustration of those who don't really feel like coming out of the closet yet. It ends with everyone loving each other as Just Friends, except for the one straight couple. First Will finally gets over his idiotic rules and they get together.

Message of the book: You can't usually pick your friends, you can't always pick your nose, but sometimes you have to pick your friend's nose. Also, triple-check the birthdate on your fake ID.

Loved how funny this book is, stars knocked down for the profuseness of obscene language. Up to you to make your own choice.
