About this item


From the bestselling author of the Brown Sisters trilogy, comes a laugh-out-loud story about a quirky content creator and a clean-cut athlete testing their abilities to survive the great outdoors--and each other. Bradley Graeme is pretty much perfect. He's a star football player, manages his OCD well (enough), and comes out on top in all his classes . . . except the ones he shares with his ex-best friend, Celine. Celine Bangura is conspiracy-theory-obsessed. Social media followers eat up her takes on everything from UFOs to holiday overconsumption--yet, she's still not cool enough for the popular kids' table. Which is why Brad abandoned her for the in-crowd years ago. (At least, that's how Celine sees it.) These days, there's nothing between them other than petty insults and academic rivalry. So when Celine signs up for a survival course in the woods, she's surprised to find Brad right beside her. Forced to work as a team for the chance to win a grand prize, these two teens must trudge through not just mud and dirt but their messy past. And as this adventure brings them closer together, they begin to remember the good bits of their history. But has too much time passed . . . or just enough to spark a whole new kind of relationship?

My daughter is almost 13 & didn’t like the language or tone of the book. She loves reading and loves a good story; she gave it a couple tries, but ultimately it made her uncomfortable. I know not to judge a book by its summary now either ☹️

I bought this book in an attempt to read when I get bored but when I tell you it was so hard to put down I'm not lying! It's so funny and such a cute story, literally had me smiling from ear to ear half the time. I highly recommend if you're a fan of romcoms!

I am new to reading Talia Hibbert's content, but I have heard nothing but amazing things! It has been an honor to have received, read, and now review an ARC copy of her debut YA novel, Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute. Bradley Graeme has finally found his place. He is a popular football player with stellar grades and a happy family; he even has his future all planned out. The only person doing better than him is Celine Bangura. Her grades are better, she is TikTok famous, and she doesn’t care what people think of her. Meanwhile, Brad’s OCD won’t let him stop thinking about every little thing. Only a few people know about his disorder, including Celine, his childhood best friend turned enemy. When life pushes them together, Brad has to face some deep seeded feelings he has kept down for years. Celine Bangura has her sights set high. Growing up, life was not easy, Celine has watched her mother work endlessly to give her and her sister a better life. Celine knew things were different, that she was somehow different. Feeling like an outcast her whole life, she has carved her path and found her niche. It turns out that a lot of people on TikTok like to hear about Celine’s thoughts and the latest conspiracy theories. She has made her name known on the platform, but it is time to make a more significant impact. When Celine signs up for a survival course hosted by her idol, life gets a bit muddy. Former BFFs Celine and Brad are a spitfire duo with a rocky past; from being attached at the hip, to barely handling being in the same room. Brad and Celine connected and bonded over the fact that they felt different growing up. As time went on, Brad took control of his OCD and decided he didn't want to be seen as different anymore. Celine on the other hand tried to let it shine and was not afraid to show her true colors. This caused a rift and Brad left Celine in the dust, found a new crowd, and kept his past behind him. What will happen when both teens find their way back to each other, sign up for the same survival course, and now have to navigate the woods and some new feelings? The mental health and absent parent recognition were wonderfully executed. Talia Hibbert made it clear that life goes on, no matter what happens behind the scenes or in our heads. We can be stronger than the things we see as faults, the things we believe make us different can make us stronger and better. The novel is well thought out, with not too much focus on the survival camp and not too much focused on day-to-day school life. Nothing felt repetitive or out of place, every detail had a home.

Adorable high school love story. Doesn’t start off as a usual love story but I loved it. Its a rom-com. Brad is such a sweet heart. Definitely recommend. I even teared up towards the end.

Okay…. I was hooked from start to finish. I absolutely ADORED this book! Celine and Brad are so precious. I’m not usually a fan of childhood friends to lovers books, but this one DELIVERED. The banter had me cracking up the entire time. The pacing was great— I was intrigued on why they stopped being friends, and I thought the timing on when that all was revealed was perfect. And I loved how we got to see them actually be together, instead of how in some books it’s all buildup and then they date for like a page and then it’s over. I have such a crush on Brad. He is so sweet and quirky and caring and serious and funny. What a sweet baby that I just want to squeeze and reassure that everything will be okay. Celine was irritating at first, but as I got to know her I really came to respect her. She is so sassy and bossy and she knows it, but she’s never mean or dishonest. Her conspiracy TikToks were so funny, I need HowCelineSeesIt to be a real channel. I loved all the side characters too. I am SO here for supportive families, so Brad and Celine’s families just melted my heart. Minnie is such a good, empowering friend to Celine and I love her for that. Jordan is the most precious bro friend probably ever, and Donno was a great foil to Brad. Overall: this was a solid read! I genuinely loved it. I read it while stuck in bed with the flu, and it was the perfect escape to the Scottish forest. If you want something sweet and light and somewhat free of pointless drama, this is for you!
