5.0 out of 5 stars I am obsessed
By Alana_thebooknerd on 14 April 2021
I've never read a graphic novel before, I've owned a couple but never really read them. That is, until now. I ordered this last year during the first lockdown because quite literally everyone and their mothers were raving about how great it is. I put off reading it as I was worried it wouldn't live up to the hype. But this month started with a glorious four day weekend, two of those day I had on my own so I had to make the most of it.

This book met ALL my expectations, lived up to and surpassed the hype and has nestled itself into my stoney heart. As this is a Graphic Novel I can't make any comments on the writing style. But the conversation exchanges between characters just felt so genuine and real.

Like, this is the book that all Young Adults need to be reading, I love that there is representation in this book, I love that it shows two different young men figuring themselves and life out. Showing the struggles young people can go through as they grow to understand their sexuality. This to me, is one of those important reads, and because it's not continuous pros but a graphic novel it can be so much more easily received and digested. I read this in the space of a couple of hours and instantly order Volume 2.

Charlie and Nick are beyond adorable, from two different "cliques" and two different year groups. You could easily imagine these being people you went to school with.

All the drawings throughout this book were spot on and it was really clear what was happening and when. Also, what the characters were feeling/experiencing.

I will say this until I'm blue in the face. This is a book everyone needs to read. It's a book that can start conversations and a book to normalise different sexualities to the YA audience as having a book with non-straight characters can still be a rare thing to see. I think books like Heartstoppers, gives YA members of the LGBTQ+ a place in the reading world, it gives them representation. And my personal opinion is that there needs to be more representation, more reality that these YA face. One of the gifts of reading a book is being able to see yourself in some characters, I think this book allows everyone the chance to see themselves whether they are straight or a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

I definitely give this 5 stars, probably more if I could just on the sheer cuteness of the characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect coming of age LGBTQ+ story.
By Fanni on 30 September 2020
My first ever graphic novel. My first ever magical experience of actually SEEING a YA LGBTQ+ story come to life on the pages.
I truly adored it.

"Boy meets boy.
Boys become friends.
Boys fall in love."

This is the simple equation of love, though, the gay factor can complicate things a bit.

Charlie is a year 10 (14 yo) in an all boys grammar school. He is openly gay (not by choice, he was outed a year ago), he is an overthinker and then he meets shy and cute Nick Nelson, rugby captain.

They become close, they become friends and then come the challanges.

Confused sexuality, coming-out, coming-out as a couple, saying the 'l' word for the first time. And... tons of awkwardness and cutness.

I had a huge smile on my face while reading this. It was just so real. The uncertainities that come with a new relationship, the extra cuteness that come from the pure heart of the two main characters. The lovely side characters who have their own little story to tell. It all adds up to a loveable story.

The emotions were extreme sometimes and seeing them through pictures and not just reading them made it more real and closer somehow. I saw the heartache. I saw the joy. I saw the struggle. And I saw the all consuming young love.

The drawing and art is amazing! The story flaws perfectly and the meaningful parts are emphasized just enough to get lost in it. Besides the conversations, the thoughts of the two boys are depicted as well with some memories and fantasies.

I fell in love with Nick and Charlie on the first page and couldn't stop until around a thoudand pages later when I ran out of published content.
(I now follow the story online and wait for every update like it's my next breath.❤)

I wish this story could reach every teen who struggles with coming out and managing life as a gay person.
Really, just give this to every boy out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, but elsewhere!
By lifeonasofa on 20 April 2021
An easy peasy 5 star review. I read this in 2 sittings as a buddy read. I easily could’ve devoured it all in one go though. It’s just such a warm and inviting book. I really needed something light after all my fantasy reading. 💤

The illustrations are fantastic! I’m obsessed with the different layouts in this book. It’s really made me want to get back into illustration myself for a start. Also the book itself is so 🤤. I’m obsessed with the size of this book, the cover is so smooth and the pastel cover is dreamy. They’re stunning books! 😍

Charlie and Nick are both just so loveable, I could really tell their characters in every page. It a VERY easy read, so little text I actually didn’t feel like I was in a book, it felt more like a tv show. Oseman did an amazing job writing and illustrating a teen romance. But even better an LGBTQ+ romance! Woohoo. It’s SO cute! Like cuter than any romance novel I’ve read this year for sure. 🥰

I’m desperate to read the next book but I also REALLY don’t want to finish the series, I won’t know what to do with myself. There’s a reason this book is hyped. I urge everyone, reader or not, to grab the first volume. You need this pair in your life. 👬 @lifeonasofa

My copy arrived in such bad quality, the pages were cut all choppy. They were red along the bottom where the guide marks hadn’t been followed. It wouldn’t even sit flat on my shelf. I ordered a second one and returned my first, the second was even worse! I ended up buying from somewhere else and they arrived fine. Ive had to return several Amazon books, they just arrive so beaten.
