Publisher's Summary

A Number 1 Audible Best Seller

A short novella based on the beloved characters from Alice Oseman’s acclaimed debut novel Solitaire and graphic novel series Heartstopper – now a major Netflix series. From the author of the 2021 YA Book Prize winning Loveless.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?

CHARLIE: 'I have been going out with Nick Nelson for two years. He likes rugby, Formula 1, dogs, the Marvel universe, the sound felt-tips make on paper, rain and drawing on shoes. He also likes me.'

NICK: 'Things me and Charlie Spring do together include: Watch films. Sit in the same room on different laptops. Text each other from different rooms. Make out. Make food. Make drinks. Get drunk. Talk. Argue. Laugh. Maybe we're kind of boring. But that’s fine with us.'

Everyone knows that Nick and Charlie are the perfect couple – that they’re inseparable. But now Nick is leaving for university, and Charlie will be left behind at Sixth Form. Everyone’s asking if they’re staying together, which is a stupid question – they’re ‘Nick and Charlie’ for God’s sake!

But as the time to say goodbye gets inevitably closer, both Nick and Charlie question whether their love is strong enough to survive being apart. Or are they delaying the inevitable? Because everyone knows that first loves rarely last forever....

Thank you

Thank you for giving the world a queer story that is hopeful, beautiful and pure. I’m so tired of seeing the representations always killing queer love off and pushing a narrative that we can’t have happy endings unless we’re straight. Just thank you so god damn much.

Listened to after watching the series

I love this so much, I’m not used to audiobooks, but this makes me want to continue listening to her other books. This also makes me want there to be another season of the series.

Hard to finish

Really not good. Bad writing, a terribly boring story, and a stiff performance from the narrators.

Loved the story

I enjoyed this story of Nick and Charlie, as heartbreaking as it was. But in true Oseman style it ends up leaving you uplifted.
