Heartstopper Volume 2 is Oseman’s second graphic novel in this series, and continues to explore the developing relationship between teenagers Nick and Charlie. It is an well-paced, emotional, and engaging story of self-discovery, identify, family expectations and acceptance. Oseman’s artwork is fantastic, with her writing quite powerful and compelling. The LGBTQIA+ themes are again explored in thoughtful and meaningful ways. In my opinion, this novel possibly surpasses the first in Nick and Charlie’s story, and is a must-read for anyone interested in a heart-felt and modern teen romance.
