Charlie and Nick are at the same school, but they’ve never met … until one day when they’re made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance.
But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised.
By Alice Oseman, winner of the YA Book Prize, Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us.

Fans of both are now debating on which one is better. The show Vs. The book:
“I love the books. I really do. But Kit, Joe, and Yaz are actual magic and I could watch them on repeat for the rest of my life.” – itsonlyfear
“As much as i love the netflix show, the book just hold a special place in my heart🥰” – sleepingbeautydiet
“I think the Netflix adaptation is fantastic, and, as others has pointed out, the cast is absolutely marvellous. However, it can’t replace the proper magic the books are to me. Even now, while I love Kit and Joe, when I imagine Nick and Charlie, the comic version comes to mind (albeit they’ve receives Kit’s lovely freckles and Joe’s fantastic ears).” – synthesisnexus
“I love the books because they’re original and I love the art style, but the show is amazing because it brings these characters to life so well” – RowdyAirplane49
“I love the books and ended up buying them after reading them from the library. They are so cute and wholesome but the show is so good. The cast is fantastic and did a great job plus I love the changes that were made between the books and the show.” – jarnie19
