Publisher Description

A New York Times, USA Today, and Indie bestseller!

Critically acclaimed and bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera combine their talents in this smart, funny, heartfelt collaboration about two very different boys who can’t decide if the universe is pushing them together—or pulling them apart.

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?

What if it’s us?

Plus don't miss Yes No Maybe So, Becky Albertalli's and Aisha Saeed's heartwarming and hilarious new novel, or Infinity Son, the first book in Adam Silvera’s epic new fantasy series, both coming in 2020!

I liked it!

As a queer teenager who is currently obsessed with broadway, (specifically Hamilton and I’m SO excited to watch the new Dead Evan Hansen movie coming out in a few weeks) I kinda loved this book. I didn’t care for the ending much, and the epilogue KILLED me, but I set the date for the next book in my calendar right after researching when it was coming out!! So honestly 9/10 just because the ending confused me and didn’t really satisfy me. :)

I fell in love with Arthur, Ben and Dylan! I love the plucky characters, the sweet, innocent optimism... super fun fast read!

What if it’s us 2#?

I really enjoyed reading the Arthur and Ben’s love story. It made me laugh at times and emotional at others. I also really loved Ben’s best friend Dylan as well as the other characters as well, and although the ending made me very sad because of the abrupt ending I didn’t feel like Ben and Arthur really got closure, I really hope there will be a second book because I really enjoyed this book and hope that Arthur and Ben’s story continues.
