What If It's Us - by Becky Albertalliv

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 canít decide if the universe is pushing them togetheróor pulling them apart.

ARTHUR†is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, itís 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 wouldnít be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriendís 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 canít nail a first date even after three do-overs?

What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work and Ben doesnít try hard enough?

What if life really isnít like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?

What if itís us?
