At first I wasn't sure what to think of the novel. And then I loved it. and then i wasn't sure any more. And then I decided to like it after all...and then I wound up devouring it in less than twenty-four hours.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson is about a few different things. Friendship, gay teens, hope, depression, love...give me more time and I could probably list more things it's about that don't immediately come to mind. Oh yeah, like music. How could I forget that one?
The novel follows the stories of two teens, both named Will Grayson. One of them is a straight dude who, while he doesn't have it particularly great in life, doesn't have it really bad either. the other will grayson's only joy in life, though, is an online friend who he has never met in person...and i'll leave it at that since i don't want to spoil anything.
(and yes, there's a reason i'm typing in all lowercase in some places: because it's how half of the story is written.)
I really enjoyed this book, and definitely recommend it to those who enjoy young adult novels...particularly if you're also looking for LGBT stories.

I wrote most of the above maybe a month ago, then kept putting off doing the artwork side of this. Since I don't really know what to do. Eventually I wound up doing a collage of clip art I found here.
A rainbow surrounded by hearts and music notes seemed pretty appropriated.
I'll try to do something a little more creative next month.
