The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl

'The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl' is Melissa Keil's second young adult novel. Her first novel was the award winning 'Life In Outer Space'.

'The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl'  is set in small town Eden Valley.

Our heroine is Alba - a teenage girl with attitude - and aspiring comic book artist.

A prediction is going around that the world will soon end, and that Eden Valley will be the only place to survive. This leads hundreds of newcomers to the town. They swarm into town, hippy style, and set up home wherever they can find space.
 
Meanwhile Alba and her close circle of friends have end-of-school decisions to make. Alba, although outwardly confident, is uncertain and scared.

And what of Grady, Alba's best friend since they were babies. Where is this all leading?

Great characterization and storyline.

Colourful and warm.

Recommended reading for teenagers.
