Road Trip Wednesday: Hold Me Closer, Tiny Cooper

Kate Hart
This week, YA Highway wants to know:
What supporting character from a YA book would you most like to see star in their own novel?


“You may choose your song, but know this: Tiny. Cooper. Hates. Over. The. Rainbow."

This is what you get from a Tiny Cooper image search.

Seriously. Why isn't Will Grayson Will Grayson a movie yet?

eta: I forgot to mention that the BFF is teaching this book to college freshmen. And one of them is a Nerdfighter. YA TAKEOVER: 90% COMPLETE. (She also taught Wintergirls. Because she, and it, are the bomb.)


Head over to YA Highway and leave a link to your own post in the comments!


  1. OMG. I love Tiny Cooper. Great choice

  2. I STILL have not read this book. And the fact that I own it, and it's sitting on my bookshelf as we speak, sort of makes me feel guilty. Of terrible sins.

    *moves WG,WG to top of TBR pile*

  3. Kate, I think we should form a coalition to 1) get Tiny his own book 2) get this film adaptation made!

    Great choice, of course

  4. I really have to read Will Grayson, Will Grayson

  5. I LOVE TINY COOPER! And I agree, he needs a movie...and a book of his own.

  6. My friend Jenny made that middle image for a WG, WG post on my old blog. :-)

  7. I'm with Alicia- I really need to read this book. Pam raved about it, too. It seems like (from the pics) that Tiny Cooper is an awesome character. Can't wait to find out who he is :D

  8. Yay, Tiny (I picked him too)! And a movie...yes!

  9. I'm ashamed to say I still haven't read this book. It's on my TBR list, though!

    Oh, and I wish your friend had been my college professor. That sounds like an AWESOME course.

  10. The Tiny. The love. The fabulousness of it all...
    Such a good choice!

  11. Tiny Cooper rocks! I don't even need a full length movie of the book, just a movie of the musical, please!

  12. I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't read WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON (though I love all of John Green's other books!). Must remedy soon!

  13. I love Tiny Cooper and would love to see more of him. But I kind of feel like he IS the main character in Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Sure, our 2 Wills are the narrators but Tiny's story is the one that runs through both narratives and weaves through both Wills' arcs. Tiny probably has more "screen time" than either Will.

  14. Haha, I haven't read this yet, but I plan on it, since Tiny Cooper sounds funny.
