Book Review : What If It’s Us By Becky Albertalli & Adam Silviera

Posted 26th November 2018 by lucy in Book Reviews, Bookish Things / 0 Comments

The book by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera can be described as a cute rom com in reading form.

The book is about two teenagers named Arthur & Ben. Arthur is in New York for the summer, while Ben is attending Summer School. The two teenagers meet by chance at a post office. During this first meeting Ben has a box of his ex-boyfriends things, that he is wanting to post but never does. After this first meeting, Arthur has this need to find Ben, he finds Ben by putting an ad up online. From that point on in the story, the relationship between the two teens can be described as cute, yet untrustworthy at times as Arthur seems to jump to conclusions about Ben’s ex.

I must admit, it took me a while to actually enjoy this book, but once I did, I loved it and finished it quiet quickly. I enjoyed the writing styles of both Adam and Becky, as it seemed like they both flowed together. I have mentioned this before that I sometimes have trouble with reading multiple perspectives in a book, in this I didn’t, therefore, I was confused at any point during the story. The rating I give this book is a 4/5, this is because I lost focus of the story early on and that it was hard to get into.

Tell me in the comments below if you’ve read this book or have read any of Adam and Becky’s books.
