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?
