Oskar är 12 år och mobbad. Oskar fantiserar om hämnd, om att ge igen. Om att vara stark, om att våga. Om kvällen står han på lekplatsen och sticker en kniv i ett träd, viskar mobbarnas namn. Då står plötsligt en flicka i klätterställningen. En flicka i hans egen ålder som han aldrig sett förut. Hon heter Eli och är en motsägelsefull uppenbarelse -- hennes kloka blick, hennes märkliga doft, att hon är så tunt klädd, så vanvårdad och mager och ändå så vacker. Under dagarna som följer närmar sig Oskar och Elis vänskap växer. Deras vänskap växer till kärlek, och Eli blir det första verkliga hoppet i Oskars liv. Men det är inte okomplicerat, Eli är inte som andra -- hon kan inte vistas i solljus, hon äter inte mat och för att komma in i ett rum behöver hon bli inbjuden. Hon måste dricka människors blod för att leva, hon är vampyr. Och när det står klart för Oskar att Eli måste döda för att leva, står han inför ett val. Hur mycket kan kärleken förlåta?
