When Sandy Saavedra landed her dream job as a blogger for the popular website ¡Latino Now!, she was a bright-eyed idealist, determined to eradicate racism and Latino stereotypes with her hard-hitting exposés. The sugar Pulitzers dancing in her head burst into flame, however, when Sandy’s Editor in Chief is laid off and replaced by Dolores Villanueva O’Sullivan. Dolores has one mission: to make ¡Latino Now! an internet sensation, no matter how many pandering puff pieces she has to pack onto its pages. Now Sandy is forced to cover the most demeaning “stories,” from telenovela sets, to lowrider shows, to the trail of the mythical Chupacabra. Sandy doesn’t see how she can keep this job without losing her soul, especially when she’s sent to Middle-of-Nowhere Texas to investigate alleged footprints of the dumbest legend her people ever created, the Chupacabra. Sandy’s sense of logic tells her she’s about to fail an assignment and lose her job. Until her intuition leads her to Tío Jaime, a grandfatherly hermit, who may be crazy or may be the best thing that ever happened to Sandy’s career.
