College is a time to start from scratch, to start over, to find yourself. Dash, who survived a car crash her best friend Danny did not, desperately needs a fresh start. But with PTSD episodes from the smallest of triggers and her cheating ex-boyfriend constantly showing up on campus, she isn't sure how to. 

She can't find a friend in her roommate, who appears to be the spawn of Godzilla and Barbie, and her very first philosophy class sends her reeling with conversations about death and the afterlife she isn't ready to face. Dash is determined to prove to herself and her parents that she can handle being on her own at school, but struggles to separate her present day from her dark dreams. And it becomes even more confusing when she gets involved with Tyler who also has a past he wants to avoid.

Can she overcome the mental scars the accident left her with, or will she carry them forever?

Yikes. Okay, first off, your grammar and wording are beautiful. Lovely use of punctuation, too. And the story itself packs a powerful wallop of a prologue. It makes for an awesome forst impression. I look forward to reading more

                              Great start and the story is already interesting. She seems like a really awesome person and i can't wait to get to know her better! 
                              A few punctuation mistakes, but you can take care of that when you edit, so, really great!
                              Keep up the good work!!

I actually read the whole book in one sitting. Didn't comment or vote but will do that now. I am so engrossed in the story that I kept on going to the next chapter without stopping. I like your MC. She is flawed yet at the same time very well developed.

Intriguing beginning.  I am left unsure if I should like her or not.  It sounds like a horrible experience, but her reaction wasn't the best.
                              I think this was the right decision to put this as a prologue, since it is set in a different time.
