4 reasons why you absolutely should read What If It's Us

Happy Ben and Arthur day!!! What If It's Us is officially out in the world, and today I welcome you to my stop of the international blog tour. My awesome friend JM is hosting the tour in partnership with HarperCollins International, and make sure to check all the stops out.

Title : What If It's Us
Author : Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli
Publisher : Harper Teen
Release Date : October 9th 2018
Synopsis :

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 quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?

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?
