Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?

Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.

Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?

What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?

What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?  (Goodreads)

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera was definitely one of my most anticipated reads for this fall, and I was absolutely thrilled to finally get started on the book! Becky Albertalli is one of my most favorite authors ever, and I was excited to read something new by her. I’ve also wanted to read something by Adam Silvera for the longest as well, so that had doubly excited to read the book. It definitely did not disappoint!!

What if it’s Us is the story of Arthur and Ben, and how they meet one summer in New York. That sentence alone basically sums up the storyline for the book, and if you’re wondering if the story is as cute as it sounds, please know that it totally is. Following along in the story as Ben and Arthur meet, get separated, and find each other again, is completely captivating, and you will find yourself totally engrossed in the story as you fly through the pages to see what is going to happen next. 

And not only is the storyline really great, but this book has an amazing cast of characters as well. Not only were Ben and Arthur completely awesome, but they both had really awesome families, which I LOVE, and friends as well. There are SO many people to like in this book!!

I also really enjoyed the setting of the book. I don’t think I could actually handle visiting New York in real life, but it’s definitely a fascinating place to read about. I loved all of the descriptions of the places Ben and Arthur visit throughout the story.

Overall; What If It’s Us was a quick, fun read, and I enjoyed the story SO much! Fans of Becky Albertalli’s will definitely love this book, and I’m sure fans of Adam Silvera’s will as well! Now that I have finally read something by Adam, I am super curious to check out his previous books, and I will definitely be keeping my eye out for new books by him and Becky as well! If you’re looking for an great contemporary read, do check out What If It’s Us!!
