Set in the UK, Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute follows two main characters–Bradley Graeme and Celine Bangura. At the start of the novel, Bradley Graeme in everyone’s eyes, but his ex-best friend Celine’s, is pretty much perfect. Athletic, smart, and skilled at managing his OCD, Brad seems to achieve the balance of kind, cute, funny, and focused–except when he ends up in the same philosophy class as Celine.
Holding on to a years’ old rivalry and abandonment issues, Celine loathes Bradley. Though a social media star focused on conspiracy theories ranging from UFOs to holiday overconsumption, Celine views herself as though she’s not cool enough for the popular crowd which stole Bradley’s attention. Therefore, Celine has forged her own path to success and continued to pursue her dreams while swapping petty insults and academic competitions with Brad. When a string of events set in motion Brad and Celine being in the same scholarship wilderness program, the two enemies and ex-best friends are forced to reconsider their messy past. Forced to work as a team, their adventures draw them closer together and help them remember the good times of their past, but the question remains whether this is enough to repair their friendship or perhaps spark something completely new between the two?
Until next time, keep reading!
