Author Steven Camden investigates why there are so few love stories for teenage boys.

Steven Camden writes young adult fiction books about love, from a male perspective. Love is at the heart of all the stories he's written over the last twenty years -but he's only just realised it.

He has also realised that being a man who writes love stories for boys is pretty unusual - some might even say it's a bit weird.

Steven wants to know why it's such a big deal. Is love not a subject that appeals to boys or is it the books bit that's most off-putting?

Steven meets teenagers and talks to fellow authors Chris Vick and Alex Wheatle, along with mental health campaigner Jordan Stephens of Rizzle Kicks.
