One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.

Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both them legions of faithful fans.

Now this is one helluva book! Simply put, it was amazing. And the show! Aah, the show. What I would give to be a part of it, even as an audience. And, yeah, I cried. I loved it!

Me and my sister were scouring the bookstore when we came across this book, tried to read the first page and didn't even get to finish when we decided to buy it. The first paragraph made us laugh really loud but that's not all. It has a lot of hilarious and heartbreaking moments that made me feel the best of feelings. That's how awesome it was. I even laughed numerous times after about the whole <3 thing, if you know what I mean..

Up next on my reading list...

Portrait of a Starter (Starters and Enders #0.5)
by Lissa Price
Published: February 14, 2012

See how it all starts for Callie and Michael in Portrait of a Starter, an exclusive ebook original short story by debut author Lissa Price. Published one month before her novel, STARTERS, went on sale, the ebook is a perfect entryway into the world of STARTERS, and a must-read for fans who've already read the novel. STARTERS is receiving rave reviews, including this from the Los Angeles Times: “The only thing better than a terrific concept is one that is as well executed as Starters. Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best, Starters is a terrific series kickoff with a didn't-see-that-coming conclusion that will leave readers on the edges of their seats . . .”

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie's only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie's head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator's grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations' plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .

Now I have to indulge every bit of free time I have left to read my not-so-school-related-books since school starts next week, which means I will have to keep my locking-myself-in-my-room-and-burying-my-nose-in-books routine to a minimum and start the first semester of my 3rd year right! HA!
