I would give this book 3 for a review.
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 really thought this book was the prefect fall read. I thought this book wad so fun. I wish the ‘adventuring” and traveling thought the pumpkin patch on their mission was extended a tad. But I really loved the focus on friendship and had elements of romance that I enjoyed. This novel graphic novel style was prefect. If you are fans of stories like the prince and dressmaker, this should be a read that you check out!
