Miguel came along later in his parents' lives. His sister, Monica, was already 12 when Miguel was conceived. Miguel's mother calls him her "unexpected miracle." Monica calls him "the oops."
Miguel doesn't understand any of that nor should he. Miguel has more immediate concerns. Late last week he was attacked by a surly, seemingly-out of control robot that leaped out of the bushes. Fortunately, his sister came home just in time to kick its head off.
If Los Angeles is a challenging place in which to live, some would classify Van Nuys as a nightmare. Poverty, crime and overcrowded housing are exacerbated by the recession that is hitting the City of Angels particularly hard. If all Miguel had to worry about was a wayward robot, he would be okay. Sadly, he has to deal with drug dealers, drunk drivers and people who treat the sidewalks and streets like a dump.
Fortunately, Miguel has good people in his corner. His parents love him and even though his sister is something of a bad seed, she won't let anyone mess with her little brother. Miguel also has his teacher, Mr. Reed, who understands that not all threats in the City of Angels are of the mundane variety.
