What If It's Us

What if It's Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

Publisher Information:  New York, NY:  Balzer + Bray, Harper Teen, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublisher (2018)

Summary: 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 own 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 down 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?  What if it is?  What if it's us?
