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. 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?
Bestselling author Rainbow Rowell and Eisner Award-winning artist Faith Erin Hicks team up to create this tender and hilarious graphic novel about two irresistible teens discovering what it means to leave behind a place — and a person — with no regrets.
"Deja leads Josie to multiple stops in the Patch in search of the almost-impossible-to-find Fudge Girl, with every stop taking them in a new direction and providing a new treat. As they journey through the Patch — chasing a snack-stealing rascal, dodging a runaway goat, and snacking their way through treats from fudge to Freeto pie — they explore the boundaries of their friendship.... A heartwarming, funny story filled with richness and complexity." — Kirkus Reviews
