“Heartstopper” is about the unlikely new friendship between Charlie Spring, Year 10, and Nick Nelson, Year 11, at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The reader tags along as Charlie and Nick get to know each other and become close, potentially leading to something … more? I loved this book in part because of the format. I’m a sucker for graphic novels and the story really popped because of this medium choice. I also loved how light-hearted it was and how realistic the interactions between the two main characters were.
Three words that describe this book: Light-hearted, pure, adorable
