Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman
The Heartstopper series tells the story of Charlie and Nick. Charlie comes out at his school as gay and didn’t think Nick could ever love him back, but now they’re officially boyfriends. This novel deals with the struggle of coming out as a couple to family and friends.

Heartstopper Volume 3 is a warm and uplifting story about the relationship between Charlie & Nick and the continual struggle of coming out. The plot deals with some pretty heavy topics including eating disorders, mental health, coming out and more. Yet it still manages to remain light-hearted and easy to read. I love that part of the story takes place in Paris as it keeps the plot moving along well. I also found myself laughing several times at the jokes. There were so many times I was reminded of my own past school trips!
The art style in this novel is cute and really emphasises the expressions on character’s faces. The graphics manage to portray so many emotions without a single word. Alice Oseman is both a writer and an illustrator born in Kent. She uses the graphic design creatively and the style feels very unique. Furthermore, she captures the small details very well. The quirky illustrations and art design make you so much more emotionally attached to the characters.
The Heartstopper series is an uplifting and heartwarming read. Heartstopper Volume 3 is an excellent comfort read that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. I would recommend this for any fans of LGBTQ+ YA Fiction such as Casey McQuiston.
