From the mega-bestselling creator of Heartstopper, a must-have novella in which Heartstopper's lead characters, Nick and Charlie, face one of their biggest challenges yet.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder... right?

Everyone knows that Nick and Charlie love their nearly inseparable life together. But soon Nick will be leaving for university, and Charlie, a year younger, will be left behind. Everyone's asking if they're staying together, which is a stupid question... or at least that's what Nick and Charlie assume at first.

As the time to say goodbye gets inevitably closer, both Nick and Charlie start to question whether their love is strong enough to survive being apart. Charlie is sure he's holding Nick back... and Nick can't tell what Charlie's thinking.

Things spiral from there.

Everyone knows that first loves rarely last forever. What will it take for Nick and Charlie to defy the odds?

Was eagerly looking forward to it, but was a big disappointment. First of all, you can reasonably sympathize with Nick and Charlie, and towards the end when the tension rises, your emotions go along with the rollercoaster. The illustrations are good, the phone chats are childish. But what actually irritates the most is Alice's writing style. The listing of lists almost every 3 pages, the naming of music that the main characters in almost all cases do not even seem to like, but above all the misuse of the Name of God and Jesus at all times. I think Alice could do something about her vocabulary. I wouldn't go to Starbucks with her for a coffee, I would already be annoyed by her language before I sit down with her. Finally about the publisher, the book is a real pain in the ass to read, it cannot be opened flat without damaging it, while reading it is always irritating that you almost have to hold the page with both hands to keep it from turning on its own. Summarized in one word: "disappointment". ( )

Audiobook

Put this novella on audible while I had to churn through a long and mind numbing task for work. It did trick and made the time fly by but I also found the storyline kind of creepy and weird.

I really liked the Netflix show but I found the relationship between these two in the book very very weird. Like great if they were in their mid twenties or older and has this relationship but as young teens their married couple dynamic is very very very weird and it makes no sense that parents would allow it.

So yeah, the immature part where they are scared about their feelings and avoid talking about it and lashing out because of bottled up emotions makes sense. The other stuff is weird and uncomfortable.

120 PAGES OF CUTENESS! ONLY 120 PAGES!! OMG this was the best. this version of Charlie and Nick wasn’t sweet and wholesome like in Heartstopper. it was pretty messy and realistic. they were sweet and wholesome but it just wasn’t as achingly sweet... more heartbreakingly sweet. it was just a really nice insight into the more vulnerable of their dynamic. in Heartstopper, despite some of the traumatic things Charlie and Nick experience, it’s always with an edge of soft hopefulness, and their relationship continues to remain steady and strong. while here, it was a bit more complex and realistic. i really enjoyed this!! it just added an extra layer to their relationship that was nice and it made me think “ohhh so they are human after all”. so yeah... this was a nice addition to their relationship and i'm in love with the two of them ( )

As Nick faces his first year away at college and Charlie is dreading Year 13 left behind and alone, the couple struggle to figure out if their relationship will survive a long-distance stint, and they also have trouble communicating their worried to each other.

Not my favorite entry in the Heartstopper world, but I still adore Nick and Charlie and the whole gang. ( )

One of my all time favourite books! I absolutely love the graphic novels and so I decided to read this book; I cried my eyes out. Really sad but an amazing book. ( )
