problems. Alonso’s papá is deported from San Antonio to Mexico and Alonso must hide his own illegal alien status. His sister and cousins act like they’re on a Teens Gone Wild film and his mamá’s at her wit’s end. Overwhelmed by his family, Alonso is convinced he’s loco, seeing visions, orbs, and auras. He dismisses it as stress -- everything but the repeated dream of Tino, a guy he’s never met. That’s a crazy problem. Under duress, Alonso spends his time fantasizing about Tesoro. He’s not the only one; the popular athlete, Brett, also has Tesoro on the brain. When the two discover they’re crushing on the same girl, the academic rivalry turns fistacuffs. Brett’s knuckles up Alonso’s nose is an escalating problem. And ... there are those who Alonso wished he’d never seen: the newly dead, those dramatic souls who, showing him how they died from cancer, trauma and drugs, also insisting that he feel their pain. Just when the game table flips and Alonso’s life goes upside down … the dead start to make sense. Now he’s on the run with those he loves from a killer, calculating problem.
