There is this author that I like, maybe you have heard me mention him before… his name is JOHN GREEN. And HE HAS A NEW BOOK OUT TOMORROW. It is called Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
I’ve been calling around to different stores trying to find out who is and is not carrying it. My friend Kelly and I wanted to purchase it from an independent store rather than a chain store, but none of them seem to be stocking it. Sad face. So I called Boarders, because they aren’t doing to well, and I thought it would be fun to give them my business. And then this conversation happened:
Lady: “Boarders, how can I help you?”
Me: “Yes, I was wondering if you could tell me if you were carrying a new release book Will Grayson, Will Grayson? It comes out tomorrow.”
Lady: “Will Grayson?”
Me: “Yes, Will Grayson, Will Grayson.”
Lady: “That is the title?”
Lady: “Who is the author?”
Me: “It is co-authored by John Green and David Levithan.”
Lady: “And that is W-I-L-L?”
Lady: “So Will Grayson?”
Me: “Yes. G-R-A-Y-S-O-N.”
Lady: “And then you repeat it?”
Lady: “So….*pause*…Will Grayson and then Will Grayson again?”
Lady: “Okaaaay…. well it says the street date is tomorrow, but I don’t know how many will be on the table.”
Me: “So you will be selling some?”
Lady: “I don’t know how many will be on the table.”
Me: “Okay, thank you!”
Don’t you just love people?!? After I hung up I laughed for a really long time. I think I might hit up my Barnes & Noble just in case. I mean, they only have four copies out, but I doubt many people in my town are reading John Green (though I wish this were not the case). I will say that this is supposedly the most mature book of his, and he has stated in the video I will post below that middleschoolers (and preschoolers) should not read it.
I can’t wait to buy it! If I didn’t have class it would be the FIRST thing I would do tomorrow morning. Sadly, I have no car and two classes I can’t miss. Oh well! Tomorrow afternoon I will have it, and probably post my review within the week! I’M SO EXCITED!
