2015 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Graphic Novels & Comics (Graphic Novels & Comics)

Leo joined AmeriCorps to do something important with his life. When his team is sent to rebuild St. Bernard Parish after Hurricane Katrina, he believes he’ll finally make a difference in the world. But while other teams do the “real” work of gutting and rebuilding houses, Leo is assigned to the camp newsletter. Frustrated, Leo and his friends chafe against authority and each other in a town longing for renewal. They’re all looking for something. Or running from something. Often, both.
