I was absolutely thrilled by the announcement of the novelisation of Dear Evan Hansen. I stand by the fact that there are not enough novelisations of musicals out in the world, and this wonderful story definitely deserved one.

Alice Oseman has always been an author on my radar, but i’ve only really got involved with her novels and other works in the last year or so. I put a tweet out quite some time ago now, asking for comic or graphic novel recommendations, and someone told me about Heartstopper.
