Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed and best-selling 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?

Perfect Young Gay Romance

If you want a lighthearted Young Gay Romance story? This is it... Noah Galvin is phenomenal, PERFECT voice for this character. The performance here is outstanding. If you're a Gay Millennial, this is for you. For me, it brought back the First Crush, First Kiss, and First Relationship memories... I will definitely look for the Sequel...

Nothing special

There is nothing that's original in this story; not the characters and certainly not the plot itself. I've previously read books by both Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli that I've truly enjoyed, this book, however, left me disappointed. I have during the last year completely fallen out of love with the YA-genre, so that might be a part of why I didn't like this book. It's too cliche and way too predictable.

great time!

highly recommended!

Finally a story that allows you to enjoy the happy moments the most! I appreciated getting to spend more time in a uplifting happy place throughout the story even during most of the dramatic parts. the full cast came forth with strong individual flavors as well. definitely a cute cuddly and exciting story!

Great story, great voice acting

I need a sequel 😩😩😩 it was great, but I’m not satisfied with the ending. It was wonderful and I hope the story continues.

Overall it's quite good but...

The story sometimes feels a bit overdramatic and to be honest I'm not the #1 fan of the epilogue. Not like it's not supposed to be there but I would imagine it differently.

In overall I really liked the concept. It felt natural mosr of the times and I especially loved Artur's little meltdowns XOXO.
