Online comic turned graphic novel series, Heartstopper by Alice Oseman is a sweet love story between two high school boys.  Volume one is beautiful, with a layout that ebbs and flows with Charlie and Nick’s relationship from friends to something more.  Endearing artwork delicately spills into whitespace to establish place, and it’s simple, much like the story. But its simplicity is what makes this story so exciting; there’s nothing to distract from the adorable, squeal-worthy budding romance.  There’s nothing more exciting than a budding romance!!! And a cliffhanger ending means I can’t wait to read the next volume! Recommended by Mary
