Dream team…

YA darlings Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera team up for one of the sweetest meet-cute stories you will ever read. Arthur and Ben regret not getting each other’s contact info when they meet at the post office. Chance encounters (is it fate?) and multiple first dates ensue.

Description

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?

    Adam Silvera never lets me down on those bittersweet endings.

    I absolutely loved this book. I'm not much for the romance genre, but this was the perfect amount of fluff (thanks Becky, you never let me down there) and awkward disasters. It felt so real and genuine, and even if you can see the plot coming from a mile away, it is utterly enjoyable the whole way through. The characters are absolutely phenomenal, each unlike any I've read in fiction before, but feeling like kids I knew in school. It does get a bit too gooey happy for me at one point, but that ending. THAT ENDING. Read it for the ending, but it's nothing short of perfection. It's been days, and I still can't stop thinking about it.

    I really, really hope Silvera and Albertalli continue to write books together, because they've really hit the jackpot with this one.

    It is about highschoolers Ben and Arthur, who meet randomly on the streets of New York and try to build a relationship. The chapters are alternating points of view, each character's view written by one of the authors. The story is satisfying, and shows that even a not quite perfect relationship can be worth working on, and that happy endings don't always look like you expect.

    I just love these authors !! Adam Silvera and Becky ALbertalli are geniuses of the modern day storytelling. I was immediately engaged in the lives of these two, and couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what, when HOW WILL THEY MEET ??? The entire cast of this novel are fun, I would read books about all of them. The college adventures, the new friends they meet. So much fun. "Friends" for the new millenia, and with real emotions.

    Narrated by Noah Galvin and Froy Gutierrez. Arthur is in New York City for the summer, interning at his mother's law firm. Ben is coming off a romance that ended badly--and his ex is attending the same summer school. The two boys meet at the post office and there's chemistry but a flash mob separates the two before they can exchange numbers. Arthur puts up a missed-connection poster at the coffee shop which miraculously Ben sees. The two begin dating and the romance that ensues is magical and messy. In Galvin's performance of Arthur's chapters, Arthur is charmingly neurotic about his first boyfriend, while Gutierrez's Ben is sensitive, with a laidback confidence. Readers seeking gay romances will enjoy (and recognize) the ups and downs of fresh love.

    Take the genuine, good natured goofiness of Becky Albertalli and the heart-wrenching beauty of Adam Silvera and you've got Arthur and Ben. The two high schoolers (midway between Junior and Senior year) bump orbits at the start of one fateful New York City summer. Ben is on his way to the post office to mail off a package of his ex boyfriend's things and Arthur is bopping around, on break from his summer internship. The boys each have a full set of their own, heavy baggage going into the summer and and they couldn't be more different from one another. Arthur is a bit of an anxious basket case, in the city for a few short months before returning to Atlanta. He is so hyperactive and tightly wound that you kind of get the impression he could out bounce a rubber ball. He is obsessed with musicals (Hamilton obsession, anyone?), comes from money, and has his sights on Yale. He is also a dating virgin and afraid of his own shadow when it comes to approaching cute boys.Ben a lot more grounded. He's calm, cool, and is, unfortunately, nursing a broken heart. He writes in his free time but school is not really his thing. Which is a pretty big bummer since his last relationship landed him in summer school with the creator of said broken heart. He is cautious, pragmatic, introverted, and definitely not into musicals. But he is into Arthur. And he stands a chance, as long his insecurities don't throw him off track.Still, it's hard not to hear a Broadway-scale orchestra strike up an epic soundtrack as they stumble into and around one another. Though Arthur got under my skin a bit, I kept having to remind myself that he was fresh out of the closet and that's not usually a pretty picture. I definitely liked Ben a lot better but I tend to go for the softer, quieter folks. (Oh, goodness, I think maybe Arthur got irritating because I saw myself in him. Oh no...)Anyway, the characters are flawed because they're human. The writing, on the other hand, is something magical. I wasn't surprised, obviously. It came from two heavy hitters in the contemporary feelings department. Im glad I saved it for vacation because it's one of those books that you just want to curl up and live in. I really want to see more of this duo's collaboration and hopefully we'll get it. In the meantime, if you haven't gotten around to reading this one, definitely do yourself a favor and get on it.

    I love the book. Telling a love story from two different point of view of the main character is awesome. I like how it’s realistic on how not everything will work out and that there is a reason for things happening.

    It was such an incredible book. I could definitely hear both author’s writing style and voice throughout. I need more books like these❤️❤️
  • (4/5)
    It was such a cute story and i really liked the concept of the “what if” moments of Arthur and Ben. And the idea that there are some people that are just temporary in your life and some that are meant to stay in it forever. But you will never know unless you dare.

    ALL THE FREAKING FEELINGS AND SUCH AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER I LOVED IT SOOOO MUCH!!!!!
  • (5/5)
    This reminded me of all the teen angst and uncertainty of school, life, and love. I loved Arthur and his no-chill energy. There were definitely some cringe moments but it felt real and true to the boy's.
  • (5/5)
    I adored this story! I don’t know if I’ve ever grinned so much while reading/listening to a book. Arthur and Ben are adorable, and both represented very real teenage experiences. One of the best love stories I’ve come across in a long time.

    While I loved gay romance in New York City, the story felt very fast-paced.
  • (4/5)
    Definitely loud out loud funny. Super sweet story. Nothing shocking, but just a nice story of a summer relationship. Listened to the audio book and loved that the alternative POV had different readers, really helped capture the different personalities and narration styles.

    Loved it, The perfect gay lighthearted romance book
  • (5/5)
    Literally. Loved. It. But it would've been better if they both ended up really together, like they've been through a lot and they deserve a happier ending than that, but all in all, it was a masterpiece
  • (5/5)
    This book is bittersweet in the best of ways. Witty and extremely enticing it makes you want more and feel like you got exactly what you came for. A realistic love story.
