Description

One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, teenager Will Grayson crosses paths with..."Will Grayson"! Two teens with the same name who run in two very different circles suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions. Culminating in epic turns-of-heart on both of their parts, they team up to produce the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high-school stage. Told in alternating voices from two award-winning, popular names in young-adult fiction - John Green (author of "The Fault in Our Stars") and David Levithan (author of "Boy Meets Boy") - this unique collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humour that has won both authors legions of fans. John Green has a huge online presence through his 1.1 million Twitter followers and YouTube channel Vlogbrothers, which has been viewed over 200 million times and has 660,000 subscribers, making it one of the most successful online channels in history. This is a Penguin logo edition.

I love this book to pieces!
By: Hanna Sipayung

When two very gifted YA authors collab, we all expect to read a great book. That is what John Green and David Levithan delivered through this comedic, thrilling, heartfelt book about two very different boys (one straight and one gay) with very different lives narrating the story. This book captures the essence of being a teenager and also the true meaning of friendship. Not only two very interesting Wills, this book also has a set of unique characters you wouldn't normally find in other YA books. This book will certainly make you laugh, but also think without it being cheesy. A definite page turner and also one of my favorite books by my two favorite authors.

MUST!
By: Adam Alfares Abednego

Keren! Green sama Levithan pas banget ngedeskripsiin Will Grayson dengan alternate-version nya. Sama persis kejadian & masalah remaja-remaja jaman sekaraang, kayak jadi gay, gemuk, hubungan lewat internet, dll.

Cocok banget dibaca anak remaja jaman sekarang, banyak pelajaran yang bisa diambil, humornya juga ga cheesy dan ga terlalu banyak romantis yang lebay2 kayak buku-buku remaja biasanya.

a must!

Will Grayson, Will Grayson
By: Ghefira Nasya

[O]ne of my favorite author is John Green so I expect nothing less in this novel of his, especially in this book he collaborated with David Levithan, another great author. maybe it's a little gay but it's entirely great. the story is so adorable, with funny characters, sweet friendship and cute love story. Two teenagers with the same name but so different personality. I bet you won't regret if you read this youthful book. Also, this book's prize is reasonable. :)

The Tale of Will Grayson(s)
By: Astrid Lim

Buku ini bercerita tentang dua anak laki-laki yang bernama sama, Will Grayson. Will Grayson pertama adalah anak pemalu, introvert dan indifferent, selalu bersembunyi di balik sahabat gay-nya, Tiny Cooper, yang berbadan (dan berkepribadian) besar. Sementara itu, Will Grayson kedua sedang bergumul dengan depresinya, ditambah lagi berusaha mencerna identitasnya sebagai seorang gay.

Suatu malam yang aneh, takdir mempertemukan mereka di suatu tempat yang tak kalah aneh di Chicago. Dan ceritapun bergulir dari sana. Tentang persahabatan, cinta, identitas dan perbedaan. Semuanya berujung pada klimaks di akhir cerita – pertunjukan musikal heboh yang digagas oleh Tiny... See More

Cooper.

Membaca buku dengan genre LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) merupakan pengalaman yang jarang  saya alami. Apalagi yang diperuntukkan untuk Young Adult. Wow! Rasa-rasanya cerita semacam ini tidak mungkin diterbitkan di Indonesia. Bagaimanapun, negara kita masih menganggap agama sebagai salah satu pedoman hidup terpenting, dan meskipun “kasih” termasuk unsur utama di setiap agama, tetap saja topik mengenai “orang-orang yang memiliki orientasi seksual berbeda” masih menuai pro-kontra. Apalagi bila segmen pembacanya adalah anak-anak muda!

Bagaimanapun, saya sendiri menyukai gaya penulisan buku ini, yang penuh dengan humor sedikit satir namun tetap pas untuk dinikmati. Terutama Will Grayson versi John Green yang terlihat begitu human, begitu lovable, dan terasa lebih relate dengan saya. Will Grayson versi David Levithan awalnya begitu gelap sehingga agak sulit untuk bersimpati padanya. Tapi tentu saja scene stealer-nya adalah Tiny Cooper! Saya sampai berharap-harap bisa punya teman seperti Tiny saat masih SMA dulu, hahaha…Apalagi adegan pertunjukan musikal yang sangat Glee, sangat Kurt, sangat…ah. Speechless =D

Untuk referensi genre yang tidak biasa, buku ini sangat recommended. Buka saja hati lebar-lebar saat membacanya, karena memang banyak adegan dan dialog yang cukup absurd di sini. Oya, entah kenapa, sosok para orang dewasa di buku ini juga sangat terbuka dan menyenangkan. Tidak ada yang keberatan anak-anak mereka gay atau bersahabat dengan gay. Well, sounds too good to be true sih sebenarnya, karena bahkan di negara maju seperti Amerika pun masih banyak orang tua yang menentang persamaan hak kaum gay. But it never hurts to have hopes! =)
