It tells the story of a bullied 12-year-old boy who develops a friendship with a vampire child in a New Mexico town in the early 1980s.
In 1983 in Los Alamos, New Mexico, an ambulance is being escorted by the police to a hospital. An unidentifiable and mute man is in a hospital room being guarded by a police officer. A police detective enters the hospital and visits the suspect, tells him that he will catch whoever else is in league with him, but is then called out to the reception area by a nurse to take a phone call. While he is on the phone, a scream is heard from the suspect's room, and when the detective returns he sees that the suspect has fallen out of the window several stories to his death.

Abby and Owen grow closer and closer, hanging out late at night and developing feelings for one another. Owen eventually asks Abby to be his girlfriend. She doesn't want to at first, but after Owen insists that nothing will change, Abby relents.

Abby tells Owen that she is 12 years old, but gradually it becomes clear that she is much older if we take into account the immortal life that she has been living after she was infected by a vampire who bit her. Since this incident, Abby stopped aging, both physically and emotionally. With Abby's encouragement, Owen defeats the school bullies in a violent fight, and gradually the relationship between the Owen and Abby reaches a new level. It becomes clear that even though Abby is forced to kill in order to survive, she is still fully capable of being a good friend and, her affection is sincere. Gradually Owen learns that Abby is a vampire, but this does not affect their relationship.
Meanwhile, Abby's protector/"father" goes out every night to kill local residents so that he can bring their blood back to Abby, as blood is the only thing she can survive on. One night he goes out and picks a car at the local high school that he can hide in until the owner returns, although when the owner returns a friend is with him which complicates matters. They stop at a gas station and when the passenger notices The Protector in the backseat, the passenger is attacked and killed, but not before The Protector attempts to drive away and rolls down an embankment on the side of the road. Fearing that his identity will be discovered, The Protector douses his face with acid so that his connection to Abby will not be discovered by the police. The Protector is taken to the hospital with a police officer posted outside his room, and when Abby hears on the news that he is there, she goes to visit him by climbing up the side of the hospital wall outside his window. Abby is stricken with grief over what happened to The Protector and to put him out of his misery, Abby kills him by sucking his blood, and he falls out the window to his death.
Abby is traumatized and confused by the loss of her human protector, and Owen becomes the only human who is capable of helping her. As the friendship between the Owen and Abby deepens, it becomes clear (from the ancient photographs on the table in Abby's home), that the middle-aged man who was protecting the vampire girl was not her father, but that he once was a young boy who became Abby's friend. Now that Abby's protector is dead, it becomes clear that Owen is destined to become her new protector. Owen and Abby then leave Los Alamos together to start over in a new town.
