"Maybe the earth will continue to spin, and
the stars won't implode for a bazillion more years, but I know, with a certainty my stupid brain has done its best to ignore, that this moment - right here, with the people
I love most - is not going to last."
Alba is facing one of the most important summers of her life. School is over and while her friends want to escape their sleepy hometown, she just wants to stay put.
But when a viral video about the end of the world announces that Eden Valley is the only safe place to be, thousands of people descend on the town. Amidst parties and prayer circles, Alba feels like her world has turned upside down. At least she's got Cinnamon Girl - the comic-strip alter ego she's created...
A funny and unique feel-good read about how to keep on being yourself when everything around you is changing, perfect for fans of Rainbow Rowell, Non Pratt and John Green.

Review quote

"Cinnamon Girl is definitely unique in a lot of ways and didn't feel like generic YA. It was quirky and I had so much fun reading it. It's hilarious." A Word Shaker --

"I went from start to finish with a grin on my face when reading this." YA Midnight Reads --

Praise for Life in Outer Space:

"I couldn't help but be reminded of John Green while reading Life in Outer Space with its nerdy boys, dream girl and lots of introspection. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I would give it to both teenage girls and boys who are looking for books with real-life drama." Bookseller & Publisher, Summer --

"Much like a John Hughes movie, this is a humorous, heartfelt and angst-y romance with the potential to break the gender barrier." Kirkus Reviews --

"It's a delicious read; humorous, well written, with strong and interesting characters and a fantastic storyline. This is an outstanding and highly entertaining debut novel about love. Melissa Keil has grasped the angst, confusion and doubt of teenagers perfectly and presented it with insight, intelligence and humour." Buzzwords
