Synopsis

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Children's Illustrated & Non-Fiction Book of the Year 2020 Longlisted for the Polari Book Prize 2020 Special hardback editions of the first four volumes of Heartstopper are available here Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. An LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between - perfect for fans of The Art of Being Normal and Love, Simon. Charlie and Nick are at the same school, but they've never met ... until one day when they're made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn't think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised. Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie's lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us. This is the first volume of Heartstopper. You can find more here!
