To say that I tore through this would be an understatement. This adorable YA graphical novel tells the story of Nick and Charlie, two English schoolboys falling in love. Impeccably written, and evocative of that age (which shouldn’t surprise as Oseman is not too far off), I read this straight through and immediately went online – where it is serialised as a webcomic – to read what was on there which hasn’t been collected in book form yet.
Sweet, funny, serious, and just perfect. Everyone should read this. And the style of drawing and lettering, loose and well, teenage-y, suits it down to the ground.
Impatiently awaiting more volumes.
