Reviewed in the United Kingdom 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.
