Charlie didn’t think Nick could ever like him back, but now they’re officially boyfriends. Charlie’s beginning to feel ready to say those three little words: I love you.

Nick’s been feeling the same, but he’s got a lot on his mind – not least coming out to his dad, and the fact that Charlie might have an eating disorder.

As summer turns to autumn and a new school year begins, Charlie and Nick are about to learn a lot about what love means.


This series has my whole heart. This volume addresses heavier topics and depicts some dark struggles with mental illness. Despite the difficulties life throws at them, Charlie and Nick’s relationship remains sweet and supportive. This series is so pure and wholesome, and even though this volume is darker than previous books, it is still a beacon of light and hope and love with incredible representation.
