The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Keil, Lawrence, Mike (Illustrated by)

She's a regular girl who likes to draw.  She plans to become a comic artist but, now that she's graduated, she's not sure she wants to leave.  When you throw in a potential apocalypse, an old boyfriend back in town, and life decisions, her little world of comfort is blowing apart.

Peachtree Publishers and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 1st.  

This Aussie town is really small and her group of friends are tight.  When one of them sees a video that says the world is coming to an end and the only safe place is her town, the kids laugh.  It is funny until all the strangers start showing up and staying.  Tempers get short, food is running out, and then the local movie star shows up.  He's there for the publicity but he's a young man now and he's not beyond flirting with the girl he grew up with.  They were a threesome before he left.  Now she's tight with Grady but he's not her boyfriend.

Things are changing.  She can't get her comics right anymore.  Grady is avoiding her and not talking to her.  The new guy is moving faster than she's comfortable with and the world might be coming to an end.  She's going to have to go grow up fast...
