Alba loves her life just as it is. She loves living behind the bakery, and waking up in a cloud of sugar and cinnamon. She loves drawing comics and watching bad TV with her friends. 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 providing 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.

  • Can Cinnamon girl save the day?

    by on

    Melissa Keil has not let us down with her follow up to Life in outer space, its just as addictive and quirky.

    Alba is a sassy, seventeen year old who has has just finished year 12. She loves her mostly predictable life in the small town until the end of the world is predicted and everything starts to become undone.

    Keil realistically depicts teenage relationships and I found it easy to get lost in Alba's world. An easy fun teen read!
