Loaded with his signature laughs, George Lopez's thrilling new adventure is inspired by his own colorful childhood and Latinx folklore.
Twelve-year-old Jorge is a misunderstood middle school misfit who has been sent to live with his grandparents in New Mexico. After catching the attention of his belligerent principal and the school bullies on his very first day of school, Jorge is lonely, resentful, and desperate for a friend.
But the only kid who shares his interest in junk food and games turns out to be a young chupacabra—a legendary monster with a fearsome reputation! The truth is, Carter is anything but savage—he's kind, a good listener, and has great taste in sneakers. For Jorge, being friends with a mythical creature is awesome. But when local cattle turn up dead and his principal—who's obsessed with hunting—learns of Carter's existence, Jorge must play a dangerous game of cat and mouse to keep his friend safe.
