When his school rearranges the classes to mix students of different ages, Charlie suddenly finds himself in the same form as Nick. They quickly become friends, and Nick even gets Charlie to try out for the school rugby team. Charlie knows what’s happening: he’s falling for Nick, and quickly. But the other boy is straight, or isn’t he?

Heartstopper is a graphic novel, that first appeared on Kickstarter. Now it’s available in regular bookstores, and there are even two sequals! And with good reason, because the story of Nick and Charlie will warm your heart. Is it a literary masterwork? Not really, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s simply a sweet and recognizable story of two high school students figuring out who they are. Perfect for a cosy afternoon on the couch!
