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, and he's sort of got

I'm here to tell you that nothing is as precious as Nick & Charlie falling for each other so do not deprive yourself of this experience.

The bind up of the first 2 chapters comes out in October, but I just read these on Alice's tumblr where she posts these as a webcomic! IT'S SO FREAKING PERFECT AND ADORABLE!!!!!

HOLY FUCKING SHIT, CUTENESS OVERLOAD.

Toto bolo proste... SUPER! Charlie sa zamiluje do staršieho spolužiaka Nicka - a o tom to je. O zbližovaní sa, hromade opatrných pohľadov, červenaní sa a kričaní do vankúša, že "AAAHR, PREČO JA?!"

#relatable

Páčilo sa mi na tom strašne veľa vecí - že aj s minimom obrázkov sa autorke podarilo podať MEGA VEĽA. Páčilo sa mi, že ani jeden z hrdinov nevyzerá ako dokonalý sexboh, ale obaja pôsobia na pohľad ako normálni chlapci. Páčil sa mi autorkin zmysel pre humor

If you love a sweet and cute YA, don't miss out on Charlie and Nick's love story.

This is an ongoing webcomic, find it here: http://tapas.io/episode/444220
So even though I reached the end, it's not THE END, there's a new episode three times a month on the 1st, 11th, and 21st.

A piece of advice: try to go slow, so it will last longer. ;D

For now I’m just marking this as read here, since I’ve just read the webcomic, but GOOOOSH, this is so cute. I really just wanted to check out the first page or so this morning, but got so excited about it that I needed to keep reading!
Lucky for me it reads like a charm and doesn’t take too long, otherwise I would definitely not have gotten back to studying today.
Absolutely adore it!

This is absolutely fantastic! I went into this thinking it will be a cute quick read that can help me boost my Goodreads challenge. By the time I'd got a few pages into it I was hooked, and by the time I finished what was there so far I was in love.

This is an on going web comic, which is being published later this year. I absolutely need to get my hands on a printed edition when I can. If you want to give it a read, you can do so here: http://heartstoppercomic.tumblr.com

5 Words: Friendship, family, school, life, love.

This is just so heart-warming and lovely, and I could easily read it forever. I've already read it twice and I haven't even had it for a month.

Heartstopper is like self-care in graphic-novel form.

Guys, Alice Oseman is publishing the first two chapters of her webcomic and trust me when I say that you don't wanna miss it!
Nick and Charlie are the cutest and purest cinnamon rolls this world has ever seen. I loved them in Solitaire and reading about their love story in Heartstopper has only made me love them even more. Do yourself a favour and read this as soon as you can, you won't regret it!
Also, if you're like me and can't wait for the published version you can go on heartstoppercomic.tumb

So cute and touching, this British comic series about two boys who fall in love while struggling with bullying and coming out. It progresses naturally and believably. Charlie and Nick are a great love story couple and I can’t wait to see what happens.
