Nick and Charlie by Alice Oseman
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?
CHARLIE: "I have been going out with Nick Nelson for two years. He likes rugby, dogs, the sound felt-tips make on paper and drawing on shoes. He also likes me."
NICK: "Things me and Charlie Spring do together include: Watch films. Make out. Make food. Talk. Argue. Laugh. Maybe we're kind of boring. But that's fine with us."
Everyone knows that Nick and Charlie are the perfect couple - that they're inseparable.
But now Nick is leaving for university, and Charlie will be left behind at Sixth Form. Everyone's asking if they're staying together, which is a stupid question - they're 'Nick and Charlie' for God's sake! But as the time to say goodbye gets inevitably closer, both Nick and Charlie question whether their love is strong enough to survive being apart. Or are they delaying the inevitable? Because everyone knows that first loves rarely last forever...
