Product description


Praise for the Heartstopper series:

Absolutely delightful. Sweet, romantic, kind. Beautifully paced. I loved this book. -- Rainbow Rowell, author of Carry On

You'll smile watching Charlie and Nick open up to one another, and sigh as they tiptoe into romance... falling in love doesn't get more charming than this. -- Ngozi Ukazu, New York Times bestselling author of Check, Please!

* Nick and Charlie's lighthearted and tender romance is delightful, and the genuine heart present in the characters makes for a wholesome and uplifting ride... Incredibly lovable from start to finish. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Realistic yet uplifting, this tale of self-discovery will make readers' hearts skip a beat. -- School Library Journal

The romance and realistic fiction will draw readers in to this sweet story. -- Booklist

Will win readers with its sweet romance, its queer-friendly storyline, and its light-touch relationship drama... This graphic novel lives up to its heart-stopper title. -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A warm, comfortable story of fledgling love. -- Publishers Weekly

The storytelling moves effortlessly from tearful poignance to laugh-worthy moments to stirring romance. -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Not only does Oseman imbue Charlie and Nick with plenty of charm and vulnerability, she also treats them (and their interior worlds) with a level of understanding and care that elevates the story, blending the genres of teen romance and coming-of-age in a highly moving manner. The resulting product is an understated exploration of love and self, full of quiet joy. -- The AV Club

A must-read for fans of slice-of-life high-school manga like Nio Nakatani's Bloom into You. -- Booklist

5.0 out of 5 stars LGBT Friendships and eating disorders
By The Sleepy Reader on 19 May 2022
Charlie and Nick’s relationship continues to grow and develop. This book is quite different to the other three and has a much larger focus on mental health. Charlie is gearing himself up to telling Nick that he loves him. Meanwhile, Nick is worried about Charlie’s mental health and whether he has an eating disorder. Charlie is later diagnosed with Anorexia and spends some time away in a hospital to help him to recover. This is well depicted with the artwork, showing that Charlie is now slightly bigger though still very skinny.

I think it was brave of Alice Oseman to cover such a deep and disturbing mental illness in this light way without being dismissive of the issues. It shows the effects of the illness on Nick but not those around them. Charlie and Nick’s relationship gets much deeper as a result and this volume covers a much larger amount of time.

I have really enjoyed this series. While it is mainly focused on coming out and a new and unlikely relationship, it packs a good punch and covers a lot of things, especially thoughts and feelings in such a short space of time.

I would recommend this easy-to-read graphic novel, aimed at young adults to all. Anyone wanting to learn more about LGBT relationships, coming out, young friendships and eating disorders would find this a good and easy place to start.
