Title: Nick and Charlie
Author: Alice Oseman
Series: Solitaire #1.5
Nick and Charlie have been together for two years now but their relationship is being put to the test with Nick heading to university.
This was an emotional rollercoaster ride, like all of Nick and Charlie’s stories are. I felt everything in this book, from happiness to wanting to bawl my eyes out. Charlie is struggling with the fact that Nick will be leaving him for university soon. Unfortunately, everyone keeps telling him long distance relationships don’t work and it causes him to doubt their relationship. Their argument was so upsetting I just wanted to cry for these two because you know they love each other but they can’t see past their fear at that moment.
While this is a very short novella, a lot happens with their relationship. You see them both struggle and overcome their fears. I just adore these two and their heartfelt relationship. It always feels so lifelike and there is so much emotion between them, especially with how short their stories are. I would love to see another novella or full book with them in the future , either while in college or after.
