Heartstopper: Volume Three by Alice Oseman Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): In this volume we’ll see the Heartstopper gang go on a school trip to Paris! Not only are Nick and Charlie navigating a new city, but also telling more people about their relationship AND learning more about the challenges each other are facing in private…

Meanwhile Tao and Elle will face their feelings for each other, Tara and Darcy share more about their relationship origin story, and the teachers supervising the trip seem… rather close…?

I have given Heartstopper: Volume Three by Alice Oseman five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

These novels just keep getting better and better and I cannot get enough of the beautiful illustrations! I will happily never stop saying how much Nick and Charlie have my whole heart! Besides the fact that I’ve given all three graphic novels five out of five stars so far, this is by far my favourite story. More warm and fuzzy wholesome feelings however, we touch upon eating disorders, self harm, bullying and homophobia throughout.

In this story, we get to go on an adventure with Nick, Charlie and their wider circle of friends to Paris! This trip looked like an absolute dream and has definitely moved Paris towards the top of my list of places I want to visit in the future. The relationships are growing and we are starting to learn more about their circle of friends, which I am really enjoying especially as Alice Oseman does an incredible of giving each character their own unique voice and has begun to give some storylines to some side characters as well. Tara and Darcy are two of my favourite characters besides Nick and Charlie, they are absolutely incredible and supportive friends who I hope to see more of in the next novel.

There more more serious topics spoken about in this novel which I really appreciated as there were elements of some topics which I could relate to and know that a lot of people out in the world can relate to those topics as well which made it a more personal experience whilst reading this book. This book shows understanding, patience but also the reality of what people go through when coming out to their peers and others. I felt super emotional whilst reading this story and that definitely had something to do with the way Alice Oseman chose to display her incredibly, relatable words.
