Staff Reviews


Truly the sweetest, most heartfelt graphic novel series that I've read this year. If you like Check, Please or Love, Simon, this is a must read. The characters are sweet and genuine and seeing their friendship (and maybe more) develop on the page absolutely won my heart.

Description


Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. A sweet and charming coming-of-age story that explores friendship, love, and coming out. This edition features beautiful two-color artwork.



Shy and softhearted Charlie Spring sits next to rugby player Nick Nelson in class one morning. A warm and intimate friendship follows, and that soon develops into something more for Charlie, who doesn't think he has a chance.

But Nick is struggling with feelings of his own, and as the two grow closer and take on the ups and downs of high school, they come to understand the surprising and delightful ways in which love works.
