Buffy struggles to deal with her mom Joyce's newfound interest in spending time with her. Balancing that with her schoolwork, her friends, and her regular vampire-slaying duties is a challenge. However, when Joyce becomes hypnotized by a child-like demon that craves motherly care, Buffy experiences a new kind of sibling rivalry--except in Buffy's case, her "sibling" is actually a monster! Author Kel McDonald (Misfits of Avalon) and artist Yishan Li return for more high school adventures of Buffy the Vampire Slayer!.

It is simply a filler story. No new information or character developments

A self contained tale set in the character's high school era, this has Buffy contending with a demon that takes the form of a child and latches onto adults in a parasitic sort of way. The art's not quite to my preference, but it is a quick read.
