Description
When Pancho arrives at St. Anthony's Home for Boys, 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 be a companion to D. Q., whosebrain cancer has slowed neither his spirit nor his mouth. D. Q. tells Pancho all about his "Death Warrior's Manifesto", which will help him live out his last days fully--ideally, he says, with the love of the beautiful Marisol. As Pancho tracks down his sister's murderer, he finds himself falling under the influence of D. Q. and Marisol, who is everything D. Q. said she would be; and he is inexorably drawn to a decision: to honor his sister and her death, or embrace the way of the Death Warrior and choose life.Nuanced in its characters and surprising in its plot developments--both soulful and funny--The Last Summer of the Death Warriors isa "buddy novel" of the very best kind.
