Leo is just your average boy.  But his best friend is far from ordinary.  His best friend Julio is a vampire.  Yes, it's true.  One night when Leo was visiting his grandfather's grave, he met Julio and they have been best friends ever since.  Now you might think Leo's parents would be upset by this.  But they aren't.  The only thing they are upset about are Leo's grades.  They think he's spending too much time with Julio and not on his school work.  But now Julio has offered to help Leo with two problems.  The first is the poster contest at school.  The second is Butch -- the biggest bully you've ever met.
