This is one of the only physical books that made me cry. Such a beautiful, heart-wrenching and -warming continuation of such a cute, realistic teen romance. Definitely, some TWs to look out for, but definitely one of my favourites.

i have tears in my eyes. i love how alice represents mental health in her books and shows such a diverse range of relationships. this graphic novel has one of the best discussions of eating disorders that i’ve ever seen in a book. this felt so true to so many of my own experiences and feelings. i’m in love with nick and charlie and all the side characters so much! can’t wait for the 5th volume!!

This volume explores mental health challenges and the need for relationships and support outside of one romantic partner. While it was a little preachy or cheesy at points, I thought the topics were discussed well as an entry point for the target audience, and I’m glad Oseman decided to address some real life challenges as opposed to the infatuation of two teens in their first relationship. The mental health crises were discussed in a narratively different way: not in the moment; rather, reflected on afterwards in diary entries. This made it feel a bit disconnected or forced but I’m still glad the author found a way to include these topics.
