Teaser Tuesday: Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading where you share a random snippet of your latest book.

This week, my teaser is from Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan:

"When I was little, my dad used to tell me 'Will, you can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose.'  This seemed like a reasonably astute observation to me when I was eight, but it turns out to be incorrect on a few levels." -- pg. 3

I just had to share the opening bit because it's so much fun (although the book thus far has also been exceedingly fun).  Don't you want to find out why this maxim doesn't hold true for the narrator? You hope it has nothing to do with nose-picking - and thankfully, it does not.    

Happy reading folks!


  1. It is indeed a smart observation! :)

  2. My mom always told me that growing up. I was never sure why, but it always made me laugh, which, when I got older I realized that was why my mom always said it :)

  3. I just read this book not too long ago and I really liked it. I love John Green and it was the first time I've read anything at all by David Levithan! Nice teaser and I can remember my Dad telling me that when I was younger. ;)

  4. Good teaser! I had a friend in high school who always said the same thing. I never stopped to think about whether it was true or not! Hope you enjoy the rest of the book.
