Amparo's deal with the talking cat was simple: a drop of blood and Amparo's name in order to become a better person. Their mother and abuela would never worry about them again, and they'd finally be worthy of dating straight-A student Iolanthe. But when the cat steals their body, becoming the better person they were promised, Amparo's spirit is imprisoned in a land of terrifying, flesh-hungry creatures known as Bright World.
With cruel and manipulative masters, and a society that feeds on memories, Amparo must use their cleverness to escape, without turning into a monster like the rest. On "the other side," Iolanthe begins to suspect the new Amparo has a secret. After the cat-in-disguise vanishes, Iolanthe's left to search for answers with a no-nonsense medium from the lesbian mafia – the only person who might know the truth about Bright World.
