Heartstopper vol 1 summary

Heartstopper is the quickest read I have had so far in 2022, and if I were to score it, I would give it a 4/5. The book was obviously not made for my very adult self, but it was cute and enjoyable. Something young adults would love.

Charlie is forced to sit down with Nicholas (Nick) in one of his classes, and they develop a friendship. Nick asks Charlie to join his rugby team and saves him from being sexually assaulted by Ben – a boy who kisses Charlie on the down-low despite publicly having a girlfriend.

Their constant closeness causes Charlie and Nick to develop feelings for each other. Charlie feels terrible about it because he has fallen for a straight boy. Nick is confused since he always thought that he was heterosexual.

Everything comes to a head at Harry’s 16th birthday party, where Harry, and other friends of Nick, take him to meet his longtime crush, Tara. 

Tara reveals to Nick that she is gay and attended the party with her girlfriend. She also tries to get Nick to open up to her about the nature of his relationship with Charlie. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen because Harry and the other guys talk all kinds of nonsense.

Nick shuts them down and looks for Charlie. He finds Charlie sitting alone and suggests that they go somewhere quieter. They talk and kiss, but before Charlie gets any form of affirmation, Nick walks away. 

The End.


I would probably read the rest of the book series in between other books just before the TV series is released on Netflix. Right now, I’m going to move on to COCK.


I am an author. I write stories, I talk about stories, I read them, watch them and I love them.
