After getting her heart broken, Inés decides she must end it all... That is, until her perfectly planned suicide is interrupted by the ghost of her chatty Cuban neighbour.
Sixteen-year-old Ines is tired of feeling like the world doesn't appreciate her. For one thing, she's too smart for Miami. She's read the first three chapters of Kafka's "Metamorphosis" and she listens to Johannes Brahms... on vinyl! Karina Torres broke her heart into pieces, which was both unfortunate and embarrassing, so it's time to end it all. Which is exactly what Ines plans to do -that is, until her perfect plan is interrupted by the ghost of her chatty neighbor, an older and opinionated Cuban woman. If she hopes to succeed, Ines must find a way to get rid of Neli... or risk being stuck with her forever.
