She alone will stand against the vampires… the demons… and the forces of Darkness… wait, she can’t even drive yet! Learning how to operate an automobile is a rite of passage that all teenagers face, the Chosen One being no different. And while Buffy faces the horrors of Drivers’ Ed., Selke and the Doctor are busy breeding disaster for Sunnydale. Does their evil alchemy spell disaster for Buffy and the gang? Have we seen the last of the super-vampires that have plagued Sunnydale lately? Will Buffy get her driving permit?! There’s only one way to find out![1]
