Refresh Refresh

"In a small town in rural Oregon, many husbands and fathers who enrolled as Marine Reserves have been shipped off to fight in the Iraq war.  Left behind, three sons, boys on the verge of becoming men themselves, struggle to grow up fast enough to fill their father's shoes." (from book jacket)

Refresh, Refresh: a graphic novel by Danica Novgorodoff, is based on an award-winning short story by Benjamin Percy.  Some called the original story a shortened version of a Tim O'Brien novel; and Novgorodoff's drawings give this retold version an immediacy that juxtaposes the beauty of the Oregon countryside with the brutality of fighting and war.

Expand your reading list with this excellent graphic novel!
