The parish : an AmeriCorps story by Joel Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A year-and-a-half after Hurricane Katrina, St. Bernard Parish is still just a shell of its former self. Its people scattered, its buildings condemned. AmeriCorps has come down south to help rebuild. Leo joined up to create real change, but ends up running the camp newsletter. His friends Snave, Cirelle, and Davy have equally unglamorous jobs, while other teams get all the "real" work. Frustrated, they chafe against authority and each other. Only Kiley, the girl Leo pines after, spends her days saving houses from ruin. Leo and his friends work, sweat, and love in a town longing for renewal. They're all looking for something. Or running from something. Often, both. Inspired by the author's own experience in the aftermath of Katrina, The parish is a graphic novel about growing up and the tug-of-war between selflishness and service"--Back cover
