Summary
From the New York Times 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?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In with a bang comes renowned romance author Hibbert's (Get a Life, Chloe Brown, 2019) YA debut, also the launch title of Joy Revolution, Nicola and David Yoon's imprint dedicated to YA romance novels by and for people of color. Hibbert keeps the priorities of her teen audience firmly in mind as she tells the friends-to-enemies-to-lovers story of Black British teens Celine and Bradley in alternating perspectives. On her popular TikTok, Celine is an outspoken conspiracy theorist overflowing with followers; in real life, she keeps to herself, dreams of killing it in corporate law to prove herself to her absent father, and hates her ex-best friend, Bradley, who ditched her to become popular. Now a soccer star, hot enough to score any guy or girl he likes, and an academic ace, Brad is Celine's ultimate rival. But she doesn't know just how much he struggles with his OCD or that he'd rather be a writer than a lawyer. When they both make it into an exclusive survival course in the Scottish wilderness, hosted by Celine's legal idol, Katharine Breakspeare, cooperation is the only option they have, and it brings all the feelings simmering beneath their longtime hostility to the surface. Between the quippy, energetic snipes and entertainingly uncomfortable scenarios, Hibbert has built a cast of characters with real depth and heart, and readers will hope for their happy endings as they stumble their way toward joy."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Hibbert (the Brown Sisters series) imbues this enemies-to-lovers romance with whip-smart banter, British sensibilities, and energetic verve. Black high school student and aspiring lawyer Celine Bangura is determined to land a spot in the Breakspeare Enrichment survival course program, win one of the offered full-ride university scholarships, and rub her success in her estranged father's face. When a squabble with charming Black footballer and former best friend Bradly Graeme leads to the pair attending the program's info session together, Brad is persuaded to apply, hoping a scholarship can help mitigate his own financial woes. Upon acceptance, the duo participate in Breakspeare's wilderness-intensive exercises, and realize they must put their past feelings aside and rely on each other if they hope to compete with the other ruthless scholarship-hopefuls. As they rekindle their former friendship and grow close romantically, Celine wrestles with her emotionally avoidant tendencies while Brad manages his obsessive-compulsive disorder amid the program's competitive, high-stress events. With dialogue that juggles both laugh-out-loud humor and pull-at-the-heartstrings vulnerability amid an outdoorsy premise, Hibbert attentively captures Celine's feelings of abandonment and resentment, and Brad's mental health struggles while striking a quintessential balance of romance and comedy in this lively romp. Front matter includes a glossary of British slang and terms. Ages 12--up. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary. (Jan.)"
