The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl

Synopsis

The only problem is she’s overlooked a few teeny details:Like, the guy she thought long gone has unexpectedly reappeared. And the boy who has been her best friend since forever has suddenly gone off the rails. And even her latest comic-book creation is misbehaving.Also, the world might be ending – which is proving to be awkward.As Doomsday enthusiasts flock to idyllic Eden Valley, Alba’s life is thrown into chaos. Whatever happens next, it’s the end of the world as she knows it. But when it comes to figuring out her heart, Armageddon might turn out to be the least of her problems.

About the author

Melissa Keil

Melissa Keil was born in Melbourne, Australia, and has been a giant book nerd for as long as she can remember. IShestudied Cinema and Anthropology at uni, and then spent a few more years dabbling in a bunch of graduate stuff, including Professional Writing and Editing. In between she has been a high school teacher, Middle Eastern tour guide, waitress, community theatre dogsbody, and IT help desk person (hands down, her most unsuccessful job to date). Now, by day, she is a children’s book editor, and she spends most of the rest of my time reading, writing, buying comic books, watching YouTube, and wrangling a cheeky spoodle named Hugo. Her debut YA novel, Life in Outer Space, was the winner of the 2013 Ampersand Project. It’s a young adult romantic comedy that combines some of her many loves – movies, music, karate, the Astor Theatre, Star Wars, and all things geek. Her second YA novel, The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl, is out now.
