This incredible debut brought music to my brain, sunlight to my vision, and such deep, vibrant, and yearning love to my heart. A simple kissing dare between Henry and his best friend Len opens up feelings of wanting and belonging that neither had realized until that night. With senior year wrapping up, so much is changing already between family and friends—what does this mean for their friendship? Henry Hamlet’s Heart is a gorgeous coming-of-age worthy of being ranked with Aristotle & Dante and Love, Simon.
