Initial thoughts: I have to say, What If It's Us is the cutest book I've read in a long while. It made me smile so hard. I loved how this book captured everything from sadness to bliss and all the awkwardness in between. I also appreciated how involved Ben's and Arthur's parents were and what great role models they were to their sons. They each had their support base and friends who really mattered to them. I just wish that there had been more to the plot. Their romance was so central to the book, that it engulfed every single page, leaving very little room to explore the tiny twists that did occur.
