What If It's Us, by Becky Albertalli


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.








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 nail a first date even after three do-overs?


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?


 


“Fan-favorites Albertalli and join forces in this tale of a New York City summer romance. This joyful romance is both sweet and substantial.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Albertalli and Silvera balance cynicism and starry-eyed optimism to paint an honest, compelling picture of adolescent romance. Part feel-good, part star-crossed, this seamless blend of the authors’ styles will appeal to fans old and new alike.” (School Library Journal
(starred review))

“Two of queer YA fiction’s best writers team up for an infectiously sweet story of young love set against New York’s bustling backdrop. Without a doubt, this is the gay rom-com you’ve been waiting for.” (Entertainment Weekly, “Must List”)
