What if it’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera


It’s the summer and Arthur is in New York. He lives in Georgia but every summer his mother sends him to New York City to stay in her office. Thanks to Broadway plays he believes in the universe and romance.

One day when he was walking to the post office he sees this handsome boy.  He can’t resist- he has to go up and talk to him! They start to make small talk and with butterflies in his stomach, Arthur realizes this boy is gay, like him.

Arthur notices he has a big box with a name on it, Hudson. It’s probably his name but Arthur doesn’t want to be creepy and ask. Once they both dropped their stuff off, they head back outside. They’re so engrossed in conversation that they don’t see a marching band coming towards them! The band separates them, and they lose each other.

Arthur gives up and goes back to the office, but he can’t get that Hudson boy off his mind. Neither can the Hudson boy. They want to find each other so badly but it seems impossible. How can they track each other down without even knowing their names?

When I read this book I instantly got hooked on to it. It shows both of the main characters perspectives and has such a good story line. There’s some parts that made me  parts that made me really emotional because Arthur  was trying his hardest to look for “Hudson”, he wanted to be with him and love him but he tried everything. I think people who like romance will really enjoy this book.

What if it’s us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera can be found in the library under FIC ALB.

One thought on “What if it’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

  1. If you liked this book I bet you’ll love Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. It’s about a girl who leaves a notebook hidden in The Strand (bookstore) with clues for someone to find. Dash finds it and starts leaving clues back…I am a fan of multiple perspective books, I think it gives the characters more equal voice in the story. Another good YA romance that does this is Eleanor and Park. Thanks for the review!
