This graphic novel is absolutely a must-read. The characters are adorable and I love how big, squishy, soft and huggable one of the characters is. Instead of being a douchebag jock, he's a sweet and kind guy, showing how being a caring person should be. There's room for serious as well as funny and sweet moments in here and I absolutely love the couple and cain't wait to read more. The drawing style is on the simpler side, with a very sketch-like quality but it fits the tone of the story well. The style is certainly reckognisable and I'd rather have a good story with an easier (okay) style than an amazing artist that can't write a decent plot or characters for sh*t.
Heartstopper Volume One
Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. An LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between - for fans of The Art of Being Normal, Holly Bourne and Love, Simon.
'Absolutely delightful. Sweet, romantic, kind. Beautifully paced. I loved this book.' RAINBOW ROWELL, author of Carry On
Charlie and Nick are at the same school, but they've never met ... until one day when they're made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn't think he has a chance.
But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised.
Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie's lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us.
