We loved getting to revisit some of our all-time favorite characters! In this volume, we focus a lot on how Nick and Charlie’s relationship continues to grow and develop. We couldn’t get enough of how sweet they are together! Heartstopper Volume 5 is filled with many different emotions, from Nick’s excitement and nervousness about going to university, to Charlie’s journey towards recovery. We were rooting for them all throughout the book. There were also a few scenes featuring Nick and Charlie’s teachers, and the other people in their friend group which we loved to see! One of our favorite things about this series is it has such a well developed cast of side characters. As always, Alice’s illustrations were beautiful to look at and perfectly complimented the vibe of the story. We cannot wait for volume 6, the final volume, to see how everything plays out. In the meantime, we’ll be binge-reading all things Heartstopper and rewatching the TV show!
