Goodreads Synopsis: 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?
I was super stoked when I heard that Rainbow Rowell was writing another graphic novel, well let’s be honest I was excited because Rowell was writing something new period. She’s definitely my favorite YA author. So when my library finally had a copy of this book I sat down and read it right there in the building.
Pumpkinheads is an adorably sweet celebration of friendship, love and all things fall. From the very beginning I sucked in. The art is beautiful and warm and perfect for the feel of the story. Josiah and Deja? So freaking cute together. I loved that the story hinted that Deja liked him, but that she helped him talk to the other girl anyway. Both of them are such good friends to each other.
And of course there’s all the fall activities and food everywhere! Rowell really knows how to make a world come alive and I definitely felt like I was there. Just thinking about it makes me excited for this upcoming fall. 🙂
In the end I gave this book 5 stars. It was everything I wanted and more, and I hope you all get a chance to read it!
