Summary

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!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Arthur's interning in New York for the summer, but even the proximity to Broadway can't stop him from missing his life in Georgia. Ben's an Alphabet City native, reeling from a breakup that fractured his friend group. When they meet by chance, Arthur is sure the universe has spoken, but Ben isn't convinced. After several false starts, miscommunications, and second guesses, they have to wonder how much of a say does the universe really get? Albertalli (Leah on the Offbeat?, 2018) and Silvera (They Both Die at the End?, 2017) each provide a first-person narrative for one of the boys, rounding out the will-they-won't-they love story with a vibrant supporting cast. In the coauthors' capable hands, Arthur and Ben are distinct, empathetic heroes; Broadway-loving Arthur, who has Ivy League aspirations, adapts to the ways his recent coming out changed his friendships, while Ben struggles in school but dreams of writing, and sometimes isn't sure how to connect with his Puerto Rican heritage when he passes as white. A comforting exploration of self-discovery and self-creation. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Albertalli and Silvera are both superstars in their own right put them together, and there's no way this stays on shelves.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Authors Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) and Silvera (They Both Die at the End) team up for a charming, sweet-natured love story between two very different boys. Arthur (written by Albertalli) is in New York for the summer while his lawyer mother works a big case. His family's affluent and Jewish, and he's a Broadway geek and a virgin with good grades. Native New Yorker Ben (Silvera) is Puerto Rican. His family's on a tight budget, he's just out of a relationship, and he's stuck in summer school. Arthur believes in love at first sight; Ben's not even sure he believes in love. After they bump into each other at a post office, then are separated by a flash mob, Arthur searches the New York haystack to find one adorable high school junior. But the course of meet-cute never did run smooth: complications include friends, Ben's ex, cultural differences, and the difficult and confusing nature of love. The authors-one known for happy endings, the other for breaking hearts-split the difference believably, and it's impossible not to root for Arthur and Ben and their many do-overs. Ages 14-up.
