ARTHUR is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it. BEN thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things. But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them? Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated. Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

I really wanted to like this book after all of the positive reviews and its winning of Canada Reads, BUT i just couldn't , so much back story for mitz and Ralph, then halfway through the book they just vanish and new completely unrelated story starts about their kids becoming alcoholics in an abusive relationship. It was like the author wrote 2 different books and didn't want to get two books published so pretended through a distant family relation that the book was one continuous story Both parts of the story were interesting at times and it is an important topic but the book as a whole is just not a winner for me. I had to re read the middle chapter like 3 times to see what i missed when the story just completely changed.

American War and The Boat people were both 100 times better in all aspects, disappointed with this choice by Canada Reads
