Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David LevithanAnyone who has been following my monthly book reviews knows that John Green is one of my favorite teen authors.  In a previous review, I looked at The Fault In My Stars, his most recent title. Another of my favorite teen authors is David Levithan, who writes stirring GLBTQ fiction that speaks to readers regardless of their sexual orientation.  A few years ago, these two authors collaborated on a great book titled Will Grayson, Will Grayson, an amusing look at the coincidences in our everyday lives.
