Totally unsentimental this is nonetheless an exceptionally moving story that is full of insight and written with a rare tenderness.

But his plans are changed when he is made carer for a boy dying of brain cancer. D.Q certainly makes the best of the life that is left to him and gradually, his positive attitude in turn effects Pancho who begins to see things differently.

The Last Summer of the Death Warriors by Francisco X. Stork
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 hep DQ, whose brain cancer has slowed neither his spirit nor his mouth. DQ tells Pancho all about his 'Death Warrior's Manifesto', which will help him to 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 DQ and Marisol, and beginning to understand that there's more to life than revenge and more to death than sadness.
