*Thanks to NetGalley and HarperTeen for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.*Becky Albertalli, who brought us 'Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens' is back and has teamed up with Silvera to bring the world another wonderful YA novel. As with a number of other offerings from Albertalli, 'What If It Is Us' focusses on the love lives of star-crossed adolescents. Who just happen to be gay. What I love about these books is how they normalise gay characters, but at the same time, do not shy away from tough topics. For example, in 'What If It's Us', the protagonists, Arthur and Ben are confronted by an angry homophobic man when trying to take the subway home. The book focussed on two teenage boys, Arthur and Ben and their unlikely summer romance. A chance meeting at the post office has unseen consequences and leads to a wonderful story. Here's hoping there is a sequel coming.
