Road to Zion

Reid, Andrew
After leaving Jamaica for what they hoped would be a better life, Jahson and his family are living in the United States without papers. Jahson dreams of going to college, but all the money he makes at his bar back restaurant job goes to paying family bills and taking care of his developmentally disabled brother. Jahson’s boss tries to help as much as possible, but he can’t give Jahson a better paying server job until he has his green card. When Jahson’s father breaks his arm at his construction job, Jahson must turn over all of his savings to keep the family from being evicted. When he realizes that even the savings won’t be enough, Jahson must make a tough decision about working with a drug dealer. He could make much more money, but he also would run the risk of being deported.
