Read Heartstopper Volume 1

Read Heartstopper (Heartstopper, #1)

Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more…?

Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn’t been too great, but at least he’s not being bullied anymore. Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He’s heard a little about Charlie – the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months – but he’s never had the opportunity to talk to him.

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 sometimes good things are waiting just around the corner…

Cute! A gentle cliffhanger. Getting book 2 from the library right away… I see there are 5 books and the last one’s not out till next year 🙁

In the first few pages, I confused the love interest with the “bad guy” which made it all confusing until I figured out they were different people. Oops!
