Publisher's Summary

A short novella based on the beloved characters from Alice Oseman’s acclaimed debut novel Solitaire and graphic novel series Heartstopper – now a major Netflix series. From the author of the 2021 YA Book Prize winning Loveless.

The festive season isn't always happy for Tori Spring and her brother Charlie. And this year's going to be harder than most.

I used to think that difficult was better than boring, but I know better now…

I’m not going to think about the past few months, about Charlie and me, and all of the sad. I’m going to block it all out Just for today.

"Happy Christmas, " I say.

Relatable and Heartbreaking.

I don't really celebrate christmas but the feeling of just wanting to get out of situatons and escaping it is very much I relate to. I relate to Tori and Charlie so much and it's impossible for me to not love any story relating to Nick and Charlie. Beautifully written characters that speak their inner monologues well with brilliant performances from the voice actors.

Ed Effecting Those Around - Minor TW

I really liked this story because it gave me the reader more of an idea of how these characters interacted this winter. I also love the fact that it not only shows the struggles/recovery of someone with an ed and how it can also affect the people around them. I'm glad that this book opened up with Tori because I feel like we don't really get much of her anymore so it's great that we got to see her perspective of this entire situation. Finally I'm also glad that this book shared what it was like for Oliver, Tori and Charlie's little brother, to go through Christmas not really knowing much about what was going on with Charlie and again how that effected him being that he also is very young. :) Love Alice so rating her 5/5 on everything might just be my opinion but I still stand by it.
