A Graphic NovelGraphic Novel - 2009
Constantly looking forward to the day their fathers will come back from serving in the war in Iraq, Josh, Cody, and Gordon do their best to make the right decisions on their own when faced with difficult circumstances in the small, hopeless town they call home.
Fathers, sons, and the war that comes between them.
There's nothing Josh, Cody, and Gordon want more than their fathers home safely from the war in Iraq -- unless it's to get out of their dead-end town. Refresh, Refresh is the story of three teenagers on the cusp of high school graduation and their struggle to make hard decisions with no role models to follow; to discover the possibilities for the future when all the doors are slamming in their faces; and to believe their fathers will come home alive so they can be boys again.

"When school let out, we went to my backyard to fight. We were trying to make each other tougher. If you stepped out of the ring, you lost. If you cried, you lost. If you got knocked out or you yelled stop, you lost.
It was cody's idea that we should fight each other. He wanted to be read. He wanted to hurt those that hurt him. And if he went down, he would go down swinging, as he was sure his father would.
This is what we wanted to do to please our fathers, to make them proud --- even though they left us" -- from the opening pages
