Publisher's Summary

Love Nick and Charlie from Heartstopper? Meet Arthur and Ben!  

From international best-selling authors Adam Silvera (They Both Die at the End) and Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) comes a long-awaited collaboration about two very different boys who can't decide if the universe is pushing them together or pulling them apart.

Soon to be a feature film, adapted by the creator of 13 Reasons Why!

Meet Arthur and Ben.

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a show-stopping 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 carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when the boys have a chance meeting at the post office, they leave wondering what exactly the universe does have in store for them.

What if - in a city of eight million people - they can't find each other again?

What if they do...and then 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?

Critic Reviews

"Romantic, realistic and sweet, this perfectly captures New York, teenage love and life in that gray area when you're not quite an adult and not quite a child either." (Lauren James, author of The Loneliest Girl in the Universe)

Obsessed!

First of all I cannot get over how in love I am with Ben and Arthur, the voice cast are a perfect fit and I can't imagine them sounding any other way! all the characters are great (Dylan is my favourite) and honestly as far as love stories go, this was magical. Every moment between the boys squeezed my heart near bursting and when it ended, I didn't hesitate in buying the next book (actually downloading as I'm writing this)

What if it's us has quite literally become my new comfort read/listen overnight, because I couldn't put it down, even to sleep.

Great book

One of those books when you get those warm and fuzzies it really hits you hard.

Story is predictable but it’s just so dang cute. Also Froy Gutierrez can read me McDonald’s menu and I’d still swoon.

Incredible

The casting of voice actors on this book was Incredible. Froy Gutierrez’s voice is like melt in your mouth butter. Noah was great as well. Can’t wait to start the next book!

Box Boy, Arthur and the Universe

The story is pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it but mostly I bathed in Noah Galvin’s reading. I loved the way he brought Arthur’s youthful excitement to the story, his love of his family and how that spilled into Ben’s family. It was a joy to listen to.
