Like a TV episode, there is a main plot (why is everyone in Sunnydale continually falling asleep, how is Principal Snyder connected, and how can Buffy put a stop to it before everyone falls into permanent slumber?), and a small subplot with Angelus, Drusilla & Spike (still in the wheelchair). The theme of the sub-plot also ties in with main plot's theme. There are a few surprises, and there is some foreshadowing of both events in "Becoming" and the Third Season of Buffy.
I really enjoyed the story and recommend it to any Buffy fan looking for a good new story to excite their imagination. Kirsten Beyer has a great feel for both the characters and the story flow, and it's a shame that this is probably the only BTVS story we'll be able to read of hers.

BACK-OF-THE-BOOK SUMMARY: "It's tough being a teenage Slayer. On the verge of failing her junior year--thanks to annoying Principal Snyder, who seems to be acting even stranger than usual lately--Buffy agrees to meet with a tutor. Not helping her studies is the fact that lately she's been exhausted, waking up each morning feeling more tired than she did the night before. To make matters worse, she's tasked with investigating the disappearance of a child . . . a little girl who happens to have gone missing mere hours before a child vampire surfaced in Sunnydale, accompanied by a wheelchair-bound male who fits Spike's description perfectly. Fighting off exhaustion and uneasy at the prospect of staking a child vamp, Buffy learns that Principal Snyder is the target of a sleep-deprivation spell that has taken over Sunnydale. Putting aside her fear that her tutor is out to get her, and hoping that the sleeping spell is affecting both humans and demons, Buffy investigates Snyder's off behavior. She follows him to his childhood home to discover that he has arranged to have his abusive mother banished to the demon dimension. Meanwhile, Drusilla, who has been playing mother figure to the child vampire, is learning how difficult it is to be a parent.Read more ›
