Life, love and pumpkins are explored in this typically quirky and endearing tale from the pen of Rainbow Rowell. A seasonal friendship goes out with a bang as moments are seized and bold decisions made, all lovingly illustrated by Faith Erin Hicks.
Bestselling author Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award-winning artist Faith Erin Hicks have teamed up to create Pumpkinheads: a smart and swoony Rainbow Rowell romance in full colour graphic novel form, about two teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place - and a person - with no regrets.
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 goodbye every Halloween, and they're reunited every September.
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 goodbye.
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, 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?
