Nick and Charlie are best friends. Nick knows Charlie's gay, and Charlie is sure that Nick isn't. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is discovering all kinds of things about his friends, his family ... and himself. By Alice Oseman, winner of the YA Book Prize, Heartstopper is about friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small moments of Nick and Charlie's lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us.


Once again, watching the TV show made me think about reading the comics, even though I picked up the second and third volume in the intervening period. Volume 2 is just as good as the first, still in that lovely scrappy fun style and following Nick as he comes to terms with his sexuality and comes out to his mum, and Charlie as he tries to deal with integrating Nick with his friends, and worse, himself with Nick’s friends. A lovely update and now on to volume three!
