TIME Magazine's Top Ten Children's Books of 2015 " Tiny Cooper stole our hearts ." -- Entertainment Weekly Especially for those of us who ordinarily feel ignored, a spotlight is a circle of magic, with the strength to draw us from the darkness of our everyday lives. Watch out, ex-boyfriends, and get out of the way, homophobic coaches. Tiny Cooper has something to say--and he's going to say it in song. Filled with honesty, humor, and "big, lively, belty" musical numbers, Hold Me Closer is the no-holds-barred (and many-bars-held) entirety of the beloved musical first introduced in Will Grayson, Will Grayson , the award-winning bestseller by John Green and David Levithan. Tiny Cooper is finally taking center stage . . . and the world will never be the same again. "Tiny will have readers falling out of their chairs laughing . . . . It's big. It's gay. It's outrageous and hilarious." -- Kirkus Reviews ★"Levithan has turned in another star turn with a book that is witty, wise, and well worthy of an encore ." -- Booklist , starred review ★"Tiny's passion for composing a big, beautiful life and a big, beautiful show overflows in this thoroughly magical book." -- BCCB , starred review ★"Tiny Cooper . . . gets his own star turn." -- Publishers Weekly , starred review
