Let's Talk About "Will Grayson, Will Grayson!"

So tomorrow is our big finale of the TrevorSpace book club's selection of WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON by David Levithan and John Green - the live chat Q&A with David Levithan from 5-6pm East Coast time (2-3pm West Coast Time) - and I wanted to make sure we all got a chance to join in the discussion about this great book. Even if you're outside the TrevorSpace age range (13-24), you can join in the book club discussion here!

Here's five of my favorite discussion thread questions (a mix of my own and questions from Trevor Project Youth Advisory council members Megan (21) from California, Blair (21) from Illinois, Shannon (21) from Florida, and Nathaniel (19) from Nevada) to help get us going:

And careful - questions 3-5 are spoilers!

In the first chapter of the book Will Grayson introduces the two rules he guides his life by, "1) Don't care too much and 2.) Shut up." In your opinion, do you think these rules are good advice? Do you have rules for your own life? What are they?

One of the Will Graysons gets a fake I.D. Do you think the laws that prevent minors from drinking until they're 21 are justified?

spoiler: After what Maura did, should the other Will Grayson have stayed friends with her?

spoiler: Why do you think it was so important for both Will Graysons to say they love and appreciate Tiny? What does Tiny represent throughout the novel? Do you have a person in your life that is kind of like Tiny?

spoiler: What do you think the future holds for the other Will Grayson and Gideon and for Jane and Will Grayson?

Okay, let's talk "Will Grayson, Will Grayson!"
