Following the world's greatest meet-cute, this book stays cute. It isn't cutesy, and it isn't always happy, but it's like holding something precious in your hand (like a kitten or Hamilton tickets) that needs to be protected at all costs.

And Arthur is one of the best portrayals I've ever seen in YA of a musical theater obsessed high school kid, which is very important.

This book is very nice, a boy named Arthur is in love with broadway romance musicals, he meets a boy named Ben at a post office and falls in utter awe of how much they have in common. They start to get close as friends until Arthur does something that changes everything. This book is very inspiring since there has been some dilemma about the LGBT community lately. This book actually has a resemblance to Dear Evan Hansen the broadway musical. I really recommend this book to anybody. Rating 5/5

A sweet, romantic read for fans of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and They Both Die at the End. We need more romantic LGBTQIA titles for teens!

What are you waiting for? PLACE A HOLD ON THIS ONE! An adorable story about two guys who meet by chance at a New York City Post Office, lose track of each other, wonder "What if..." and then find each other. Knowing they've only a few weeks together, they fall in love anyway. And love isn't easy -- in fact, they have several do-overs. A fun read by the authors of popular YA LGBT books Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda (a.k.a. the "Love, Simon" movie), and They Both Die at the End. READ IT! (:
