Adriana | 3543 comments 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?

That was super adorable and quick to read. I loved the artwork for it so much. Josiah was frustrating but Deja really holds my heart.

np :) I will buy it on thursday.


Courtney | 11423 comments Okay :) I will keep an eye out on the thread.


Katie | 3148 comments Hello guys! I've never really read any graphic novels, but I've been hearing great things about this one, and I wanted to make a goal for myself to try and read a few this year! I thought this would be a good one to start with!

Can someone help me with how to post this for points? Since it's graphic novel, I think I need to read 600 pages. So I read a bunch of them, and add them together. Is that correct? So if read 3 of my graphic novels (or however many it takes to get to 600 pages) I can then choose one of those books to score. Is that correct? Thanks in advance! I'll start this one soon!

Read it just now.
Really enjoyed the plot the art was nice too.
I think I "lost" some of the emotion, because pumpkins are not a huge deal here in norway, but still enjoyed it.

Honestly besides it take place in a pumpkin patch I dont understand what pumpkins have to do with the story.

Well I felt like a lot of the stuff they did were american based, or stuff that are not normal here in norway. We dont really "do"fall the same here. But hey might just be me.
