"Excerpts from a Year of Service" is about a young woman, Julie, who leaves her home in Washington State to join the National Civilian Community Corps, AmeriCorps NCCC*, for 10 months in Perry Point, Maryland with her best friend, Traci. Julie and Traci have never been away from their home for such a long period of time and while Traci transitions easily into her new life, Julie does not. While away, Julie meets new people, makes friends and travels the eastern seaboard of the United States with her teammates working on various community service projects. This book is then a coming of age tale about becoming a semi-adult during the time in AmeriCorps and the awkwardness, confusion and mistakes Julie makes while figuring out who she really wants to be.
