Faith has been sharing some art from this on twitter and yes

I don't think I've ever updated a review this much before it's even released, but I'm really excited about this one!


Finally a title and synopsis! It sounds really adorable. Really, though, that's to be expected from Rainbow and Faith. Can't wait!!!!!


In an interview in October, Rainbow gave us this bit of information:
"I can tell you that it’s a hidden world story. Young

Cover: Yes
Plot: Yes
And there better be some sort of Fangirl cameo in here
There are three things that I read and that was all I needed to know before needing this book:

1. Pumpkin Patches
2. Graphic Novel

this sounds absolutely adorable

A graphic novel dedicated to autumn and pumpkins?? The first Rainbow Rowell book I've ever wanted to read.

I'm in deep, passionate love with Faith Erin Hicks' art style, so getting to see that combined with my other love, Rainbow Rowell's writing is very exciting. The nice fall story seems sweet enough to be comforting, but also interesting enough to say some really unique things about friendship.

03/02/2019 - This comes out on the day of my 21st birthday and i'm kinda supersticious so.... gotta have it

I like the art, and this looks like a feel good type of story, I'm in.

Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (ELEANOR & PARK and FANGIRL). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that
