Staff Picks for the Month of March are:

“The Illegal” by Lawrence Hill, “Snow Falling on Cedars” by David Guterson, and a Young Adult pick “The Fault in our Stars” by John Green.

‘The Illegal’ – Keita Ali is on the run.  Like every boy on the mountainous island of Zantoroland, running is all Keita’s ever wanted to do.  In one of the poorest nations in the world, running means respect.  Running means riches—until Keita is targeted for his father’s outspoken political view and discovers he must run for his family’s survival.

He signs on with notorious marathon agent Anton Hamm, but when Keita fails to place among the top finishers in his first race, he escapes into Freedom State—a wealthy island nation that has elected a government bent on deporting the refugees living within its borders in the community of AfricTown.  Keita can stay safe only if he keeps moving and eludes Hamm and the officials who would deport him to his own country, where he would face almost certain death.
