Heartstopper by Alice Oseman is a comic book styled love story of two boys falling in love.
This is a really nice love story that is quick and easy to read, thanks to the graphic format.
I really enjoyed this book. So much that I threw it to my 13-year-old daughter to read. It opened the doors to some comfortable conversations about same-sex relationships, sexual attraction, love, friendships, bullying, stereotypes and much more. And we’ve just requested a copy of the second volume from our local library, so that we can find out what happens next!
A great book for your tween or teen to read that will start conversations about love, sex and relationships.
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman is ideal for children from 12+ years of age.
