When Pancho arrives at St. Anthony''s Home, he knows his time there will be short: If his plans succeed, he''ll soon be arrested for the murder of his sister''s killer. But then he''s assigned to help D.Q., whose brain cancer has slowed neither his spirit nor his mouth.
From the Publisher:
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.
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.
