Tiny Cooper is your new boyfriend (well, not mine, he doesn't swing that way). Readers met the flamboyant high school football player and would-be musical impresario as a side character in the 2010 novel Will Grayson, Will Grayson and fell in love — about as quickly as Tiny did with each of his 18 exes.
In Will Grayson — co-written by John Green and David Levithan — Tiny used those 18 ex-boyfriends as fodder for a musical version of his life. Now, Levithan has given Tiny his own starring role in Hold Me Closer, a fully realized version of that magnum opus.
