12. Will Grayson, Will Grayson - (7/2) - John Green 5/5 stars
5/5 - LOVED!

It is hard to say that this is the best audio book I've listened to because of the masterpiece that was Freedom. However, I think this is the best audio book I've heard.

This is one of those cases where the audio HAS to have been better than just reading the book. It was BRILLIANTLY done. It was a duel narration (one for each Will Grayson).

This is a teen book, for certain. About 3 high-school aged boys, two named Will Grayson, one named Tiny Cooper. It is about friendship, love, acceptance, self-acceptance, tolerance, being gay, being straight. The characters were excellent. The book was hilarious. And also touching.

I absolutely loved it, and a HIGHLY recommend it, particularly if you struggle with audio.
