In the follow-up to their charming NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, What If It’s Us, best friends Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda) and Adam Silvera (They Both Die At The End) reunite to give Arthur and Ben another shot at true love.

From the creator of 13 Reasons Why, What If It’s Us is soon to be a feature film!


Ben has spent his freshman year of college working on his fantasy manuscript with his writing partner Mario, who is a great Spanish tutor, and even better kisser. So why can’t he stop thinking about the fact that Arthur’s back in town two years after they called it quits?

Arthur has just been dumped and accused of still being in love with his ex. Back in New York City for a dream internship on Broadway, Arthur is nonplussed when he comes upon Ben cuddled up with a mystery boy. He’s now starting to wonder if he truly does have lingering feelings for Ben.

Even as the boys try to focus on their futures, they can't seem to help running into each other in the present. Is this the universe forcing them to question if they’re actually meant to be?

Possibly not. After all, things didn’t work the first time around.
Possibly yes. After all, the sparks are still flying.
Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith and raise a glass.

Here’s to celebrating old friends!
Here’s to embracing new beginnings!
Here’s to believing in second chances!
