From the Publisher
Annotation At 17, Pancho's life is a complete mess and he is about to make it even worse by avenging his sister Rosa's murder. His mother died when he was five, and his father died recently in a freak accident, leaving Pancho with just his sister, who dies under mysterious circumstances. Left in care at St. Anthony's Orphanage, Pancho meets D.Q., a boy with irreparable brain cancer who is determined to get the most out of life while he can, becoming a "Death Warrior." The two travel from Las Cruces, New Mexico, to Albuquerque in search of answers to different questions, creating a deep bond. By the author of the critically acclaimed MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD.
Editors Note Relocated to a boys' home while plotting to kill his sister's murderer, Pancho is unexpectedly assigned to be a companion to brain-cancer patient, D.Q., who regales Pancho with descriptions of the Death Warrior creed and the honorable example of the beautiful Marisol. By the author of Marcelo in the Real World.
