This was a very cute book! There were a couple times I wanted to shake the main characters but they just acted like any teenager in love would. I also laughed out loud many times while reading this book.

SPPL_Anna has it explained in her excellent review, so scroll down to that. The meet-cute was fun and the book felt very "true to life", so it was a fun read.

I loved this from start to (especially) finish -- both characters are written note-perfectly, and I don't know what more to say about this other than it might have my favorite-ever ending for a teen romance.

It’s sad how much wasted potential this book had. I was excited, like the majority, but it felt like a flop from the start. The pitch is great but the book didn’t live up to the hype generated by both authors’ fans. Not to pick sides, but the plot points did feel more like a Becky Albertali book, where as I think all Adam Silvera’s books are great. I wish he took the lead in writing, and Becky took small romance moments and jokes. And something that bugged me beyond anything is how unrealistic the whole beginning was, to then have the most relatable/ realistic ending ever.

Other than these factors, the book was interesting and held my attention for the 2 days it took to read it. It’s very fast paced but I do think it’s worth the read of any other fans of LGBT ya stories.

Super cute, but the open ending left me feeling vaguely unsatisfied.

This book is so good, I just finished it today. I wish there's more this type of book. that made me can't stop from reading it.

About:
This story is a boy + boy romantic love dramas. Writen in diary kind of formula. Main character Benjamin and Arthur. Both cute. Really cute. They met in the post office and end in the post office. I don't know if they are still dating after the last sentence of the book. But what if..?
:)

Enjoy your reading, no more spoil

I love this book and this author.

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! (:
