Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute
I will read anything and everything written by Talia HIbbert. Her adorable YA debut follows two Black teens—one a snarky fat-bodied TikTok conspiracy theorist, the other an aspiring sci-fi writer with OCD—along an enemies-to-friends-to-lovers arc during a competitive wilderness expedition. Celine and Bradley are equally ambitious; the only question is whether it’s to prove their worth to an absent parent, to the competition judges, to themselves, or to each other. The feel-good story is all about believing in yourself and being a true friend. Recommended by Mary
