Genre: Graphic Novel – Contemporary
Target Audience: 12+
Rating: A- (86%)
Goodreads Rating: 5/5
If you’re after a super cute and super fast contemporary graphic novel, then this is the one for you. With extreme fall/autumn vibes, it will have you craving a pumpkin spice latte, and wishing for the leaves to start colouring.
I have to note that this story is predictable, as I guessed where the plot would end only a few pages in. If this is a plot point that doesn’t really bother you, then I can’t help but push this book even more.
It’s got a cute little adventure, and shows poor work ethic — but its their last night there ever, so who cares?
Honestly, I loved it. I will 100% read this one again, and again, and again.
PICK IT UP!
Deja and Josiah are seasonal best friends.
Every autumn, all through high school, they’ve worked together at the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world. (Not many people know that the best pumpkin patch in the whole wide world is in Omaha, Nebraska, but it definitely is.) They say good-bye every Halloween, and they’re reunited every September 1.
But this Halloween is different—Josiah and Deja are finally seniors, and this is their last season at the pumpkin patch. Their last shift together. Their last good-bye.
Josiah’s ready to spend the whole night feeling melancholy about it. Deja isn’t ready to let him. She’s got a plan: What if—instead of moping and the usual slinging lima beans down at the Succotash Hut—they went out with a bang? They could see all the sights! Taste all the snacks! And Josiah could finally talk to that cute girl he’s been mooning over for three years . . .
What if their last shift was an adventure?
