Genre: Romance, Graphics Novel, LGBTQ+ etc
A little recap!! We have a 10th grader Charlie falls for Nick who is an 11th grader, Nick Some how persuades Charlie to join the Rugby Team and that’s the start of the Friendship, or Will this friendship leads to something..
This book was more like a time-travelling machine to me. It took me to my teens when I realized that the girl I had fallen for also feels the same for me!! That surreal happiness that feelings or snowfall in your underbelly Everything was relieved when Nick also started feeling the same for Charlie!!
It also didn’t disappoint me in educating me about the community a little more. To be honest, it was nothing new but for the first time I got to know in a person’s POV, I knew what lesbians, Gay or Even a transgender person feel, But this is the first time I am reading something where someone trying to understand or figure out their sexual orientation is and that was like a good learning experience to me.
The Struggle Nick Feels with understanding himself and making the world understand about him! This is something to look out for. Yes there are Characters who are not good with acceptance, and you feel like hitting them, but again that’s maybe my issue.
And let me remind you all these are conveyed over brilliant artwork, so big kudos to the artist!!
So overall it was an awesome experience, Now I really cannot wait to pick up Volume 3 to know what new challenge Nick and Charlie are going to overcome this time!
