But this holiday things are different – the childhood games that once filled their days have lost their appeal to everyone except Millie.

Dylan and Flo are on the rocks. Of course they are in love. Obviously they want it to work. But sometimes it feels like the world is against them. Their flat is falling apart, their friends never stop meddling and the obstacles keeping them from their dreams are insurmountable. Maybe they just . . . aren't meant to be? The break-up completely shatters them both. While Flo cries in her Mum's kitchen, penning ballads about heartache, Dylan is forced to sleep on his best friend's sofa and channel his pain into acting.

Heartstopper – TV Show Review

Alice Oseman is an author I first picked up a book from in 2014. I picked up Solitaire whilst I was in college and struggling with a number of things. In that book I was introduced to Alice's writing, her characters and knew I was going to read more books by her as soon as they came out. Nick and Charlie were introduced to me in Solitaire and have always been characters I've adored. Years later, many Alice Oseman books later, she is still a favourite author of mine and Nick and Charlie are still some of my favourite fictional characters!
