Oh my heart.
I am totally on team Nick and Charlie. Their romance is the cutest, sweetest thing ever.
In volume 2, Charlie and Nick officially get together, but Nick — who has realized that he’s bi — isn’t quite ready to go public with it yet. That is quite all right with Charlie, because he was bullied last year when he was accidentally outed, and doesn’t want the same for Nick.
It’s super cute, full of clandestine kisses and Nick and Charlie slowly telling everyone that they’re together.
Volume 3 is a summer trip to Paris, learning about Nick’s family, and finally being comforanble being out together. Oh, and Charlie may have an eating disorder.
It was absolutely delightful to read these, even with the high school angst and the bullies and the homophobic families. Nick and Charlie have a fantastic relationship, and I am here for it.
Bring on Volume 4!
