Teenager Trudy Purdy, a self-described plain Jane, is ecstatic when football player Tray Farquar asks her to be his girl. Not only is Tray handsome, but his father is the most distinguished man in town. Trudy realizes she's made a terrible mistake when Tray lures her to a deserted beach where he and three buddies rape and beat her.
When she awakes uninjured in her home, she initially remembers nothing of the horrifying assault. But as days pass, her mind flashes back to the night on the beach, and she begins to feel a new power within herself. Trudy uses her newfound strength-gained by drinking the blood of others-to plot the "accidental" deaths of the boys who brutalized her.
As Trudy exacts revenge, she realizes she is changing in a big way and seeks answers to the unsettling questions about her new powers. She wonders what she is changing into and how it will affect the rest of her life.
