Review: Here's to Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
They may have broken up at the end of summer, but they've remained friends ... right? And they're both happy in their relationships, Arthur with Mikey, a nice dependable guy, and Ben who is almost-but-not-quite dating the very attractive and personable Mario. It looks as though both have met their perfect match. So why hasn't Ben contacted Arthur in a while? And what inspired Arthur to apply for an internship in New York? And how long will it take before their paths cross ... again?
This was such a fun read. It was fantastic to revisit Ben and Arthur, and I loved how the authors kept us up to date on some of the other side characters from the first book, particularly Dylan and Samantha, who I think I loved even more in this book than I did in What if it's Us. Ben and Arthur compliment each other well. I couldn't help but feel sorry for Mikey, though I wish he'd plucked up a bit more courage early on and stood up for himself.
Overall, a fun read and the perfect sequel to What if it's Us.
Thank you to Simon and Schuster Australia for my copy of Here's to Us.
