Hold Me Closer : The Tiny Cooper Story
It’s Tiny Cooper’s turn in the spotlight in this companion novel to New York Times bestseller Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
Jazz hands at the ready! Tiny Cooper (“the world’s largest person who is also really, really gay”) stole readers’ hearts when he was introduced to the world in the New York Times bestselling book Will Grayson, Will Grayson, co-authored by John Green and David Levithan. Now Tiny finally gets to tell his story—from his fabulous birth and childhood to his quest for true love and his infamous parade of ex-boyfriends—the way he always intended: as a musical! Filled with honesty, humor, and “big, lively, belty” musical numbers, the novel is told through the full script of the musical first introduced in Will Grayson, Will Grayson.

Tiny will have readers falling out of their chairs laughing. . . . It’s big. It’s gay. It’s outrageous and hilarious. (Kirkus)
Levithan has turned in another star turn with a book that is witty, wise, and well worthy of an encore. (Booklist)
[Hold Me Closer] is able to stand on its own as a story of coming out, looking (and looking and looking) for love, and valuing and trusting one’s friends. (Horn Book)
