This is Not a Love Story

by Alice Oseman (she/they) 
The Gender Creative Child, by Diane Ehrensaft, PhD

Solitaire is a story about mental illness told through an unreliable narrator. The presentation of mental illness in this story is sometimes sensationalised, underexplained, and may be harmful to readers who have experienced mental illness. Please read safely and responsibly.

Please also note that Solitaire is a much darker, more graphic, more serious book than the Heartstopper series, and may not be suitable for all readers who have enjoyed Heartstopper.

Alice made editorial changes to Solitaire in August 2020. The edited edition has an author’s note at the front of the book.
