Dust is a prose short story from “How I Survived My Summer Vacation” anthology book. It was written by Michelle West and published by Simon Pulse.

Synopsis

When sophomore year ended with Buffy’s defeat — just barely — of the Master, she headed off to spend the summer with her father in L.A. The theme was R&R, parties, and an occasional shopping spree. But things that go bump in the night don’t take vacation. So Buffy’s trying desperately to keep a lid on things in L.A. — and to keep her secret identity from her father.
