What If It's Us

By Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli


If you're looking for a sweet meet-cute romance between people who seem to be complete opposites but end up being similar in ways that no one expected, you've come to the right place!

Genre: Contemporary

Recommended Age Level: 13+


Rating: 4.5/5


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?

A Review

This was a really fun read! I love the running theme that seemed to say, love is inevitable and indomitable, and hearing from both Arthur's and Ben's perspectives was really interesting and fun. It was really cool how, within their love story, they also found pieces of themselves and closure from things in the past, showing how healing is not always what you expect it to be. Check this one out for a beachy read!
