GOODREADS BLURB

In this volume we’ll see the Heartstopper gang go on a school trip to Paris! Not only are Nick and Charlie navigating a new city, but also telling more people about their relationship AND learning more about the challenges each other are facing in private…

Meanwhile Tao and Elle will face their feelings for each other, Tara and Darcy share more about their relationship origin story, and the teachers supervising the trip seem… rather close…?

MY THOUGHTS

My rating for this book comes as no surprise for anyone who is friends with me on goodreads and has seen how much I have screamed over the first two volumes in this series. And honestly? The third did not let me down in the slightest.

In this bind up, we follow Charlie and Nick as they go on a trip to Paris and start to really learn about one another. We see them learn small things and big things, things that will change their relationships, and things that make you just smile.

I think my favourite thing for this volume, is the eating disorder rep. So if you’re uncomfortable with that, please be careful! We see Charlie refusing meals, and at one point fainting from a lack of energy. These signs lead to a conversation between our new couple that I found really heartwarming. Both for the way Nick accepts him, and for the way it reminds us that it is okay to not be okay.

We also get to watch them deal with more trivial and romantic things, like them both wanting to say I love you, but being too nervous to. Every single part of this volume felt realistic and adorable. It made you feel like you could be reading about a couple that exit in the real world because these characters are so vibrant and three dimensional.

I genuinely don’t have anything negative to say about this book. I devoured it in about an hours time while sitting on my couch and I LOVED every moment of it. We got to focus a little more on the side characters which I enjoyed hearing about, and we got to see Paris through their eyes. Personally, I know this is a series I will be sticking with, right till the end.

If you are into contemporaries, and want to try out graphic novels/comics/manga, I would genuinely recommend this series as a starting place for it’s ease and heartwarming tropes.

If only we didn’t have to wait a year for the next volume!
