  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 October #2
    Boy-meets-boy, crushes, bullying, protective friends, and innocent romance fill the pages of this sequel to Heartstopper (2019). Charlie and Nick met at an all-boys school in England, but the second volume picks up after the introductions are out of the way and a potentially unwanted kiss has happened. The boys' relationship is presented in such a heartfelt, gentle way that even an ugly bit of homophobic bullying feels less harrowing than it could. The loose art style is full of lovely details, such embarrassment and romantic blush lines or patterned socks to support a character's mood or style, though text-message exchanges, depicted in white letters on a green background, can be difficult to read. This simple story, sweetly told, is a fast, fun book that can easily be picked up and enjoyed without having read the first, though readers who wish to get ahead can read installments of the webcomic version on the author's web page. A must-read for fans of slice-of-life high-school manga like Nio Nakatani's Bloom into You. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
