M. It will be only chapter 3! Makes sense since it is way longer than chapters 1 and 2.

ARGH IT'S JUST TOO CUTE I am so soft for these comics and this one focused on Nick's coming out and also just finding a label and feeling comfortable with it. And Charlie was so so amazing about it all; no pressure, no be ashamed that Nick wanted to hide them at first. And the BLUSHES and kisses and soft affirmations like I will cry on u. do not test me, it will happen. I also just adore art style. It's so expressive and adorable (Charlie's blushing face is just super cute).

Good lord, these books are so sweet and so wonderful, I swear my heart grew a few sizes reading this today!

The second volume of Alice Oseman's gorgeous, life-affirming, squee-inducing graphic novel, Heartstopper picks up where the last one left off. Charlie and Nick's friendship has been growing closer and closer, and Charlie definitely has a huge crush on Nick, despite the fact that Nick is straight. Or is he?

Nick can't get Charlie out of his mind. He just wants to be with him, and he's

This was perfect. I am so in love with these two! Nick and Charlie are the best and I can't wait to continue on with their story- I'm only sad I have to wait 6 months for the next one to come out. I can't recommend the 'Heartstopper' graphic novels enough!

Felt a bit down, read this in a hour and a half and now my heart feels full

Well if these two aren't the most adorable human beings ever?!

I am loving the Heartstopper series!

Volume Two focuses on Nick and Charlie finding their feet as their feelings for each other develop and they spend more time together.
Nick is discovering who he is and how he wishes to identify, as they both tackle the dramas of a teenage relationship.

So sweet. Love the art style as well.

These are really quick graphic novels, that are short but somehow very satisfying. I read this one in about 15 minutes but enjoyed it immensely.

"Oh. You're being gay. Good job. Carry on."

So, the second installment of this wonderful series was just as wholesome, adorable, inclusive and explorative as the first.

In this second volume of Heartstopper, Nick and Charlie are officially in love and cute as fuck, but of course not everything is easy just because of that. No, Nick is still figuring himself out, and the two of them have to come to terms with how, when and to who they want to come out to - if at all.

This is going to be a very short review as I don’t have much to say and my thoughts are the same as book one.

I think I am just a little bit old for this story, and although I would have appreciated it years ago, I just felt not much was happening here except for pages and pages of kissing! The story this time focused more on Nick discovering who he is. I like the bisexual representation and confusion and quizzes that

Love the physical copy. I enjoyed this story even more the second time around. Nick and Charlie are the sweetest.

Original review:
I read this volume as a webcomic, as it was coming out. I've been really liking Nick and Charlie's story so far. They are so sweet and adorable.

"i like charlie spring!
in a romantic way not just a friend way."

this. god this was just pure, it healed my poor gay heart. it was the type of thing i wish i was reading when i was questioning my own sexuality. it's just sweet, with the most adorable soft boys and if you're out there questioning, doesn't know how to label yourself yet (which is fine, take your time) this is a must read.

heartstopper and alice oseman owns my heart.

This book deserves all the stars!! This second volume mostly revolves around Nick and his coming out, but it's of course also about his relationship with Charlie and how it's evolving more every day. Nick and Charlie are just the cutest and I want to protect them at all costs! If you haven't already, please give this lovely comic a chance, you won't regret it!

gah this graphic novel series is just so heartwarming and pure like how can i not love it? i love that this volume explores nick’s struggle with his sexuality, as that is something that nearly everyone in the lgbt+ community has experienced, myself included. these novels are just so cute and lovely and i’m so excited for the third volume!
