Pumpkin Heads | Rainbow Rowell & Faith Erin Hicks



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 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?


A genre i’ve been wanting to get into more lately is graphic novels, and Pumpkin Heads was such a great introduction to the world of graphic novels.

Pumpkin Heads is the story about Deja and Josiah, who have worked together at a pumpkin patch every year through out high school. The story is based on their last shift at the pumpkin patch, Josiah chasing after and finally talking to the girl he’s like for the past three years, and Deja, helping him along the way.

I loved this! The illustrations were detailed and in colour which i loved, and the story itself just had me feeling all warm inside and laughing out loud.

My favourite most definitely has to be Deja! She is hilarious all through out this story and every time she changed the name of Josiah’s crush had me giggling.

Overall a cute, quick and heartwarming fall read, one that makes me want to go and grab everyone I love and go frolic in a Pumpkin Patch.


*Thank you to Pan Macmillan Australia for sending me a copy to read and review.
