Description

One evening Leo's friend Julio disappears. He rode off on his bike, and hasn't come back. Leo and his classmate Butch are very worried because Julio is a vampire and cannot be exposed to daylight. The boys have to get as much help as they can to find the boy before daybreak. Only a few people in the village know of Julio and his family. Now his parents have to come out from their apartment underneath the cemetery to meet a very unfriendly crowd. This story is about finding the courage to confront prejudice and the value of facing risks to do the right thing.
