“Hey, my name is Dani. I’ve been drug-free for four years and eight days. I still have a little trouble with alcohol, but I’ve got it mostly under control. I was excited to move to New York and pursue my dreams at Juilliard. But, it didn’t turn out the way I wanted. Most of my life hasn’t turned out the way I wanted. Yeah. Pretty much all of it. So, I’m moving home in a couple days. I don’t think it’ll turn out too great. Everyone knows everyone and they all know every terrible thing I ever did, and they won’t let me outrun it. I’ve known for a long time that home will probably kill me.”
Dandelion Sanders has not caught a break in years. Every plan she makes for her life falls apart because of the people around her or herself. When she arrives home will she rise above temptation or self-sabotage her life, yet again? Join Dani on her road to recovery and failure in the first book of the Dandelion Jane series.

My therapist wants me to use this grounding technique to help stave off the PTSD. It’s gotten worse since August, since I almost killed my best friend, and left my other best friend to a pack of wolves. I don’t think I could sink lower than I am. All I see around me is pain, anger, my own screw-ups, people who hate me, and no escape. The grounding technique doesn’t help. It leaves me feeling more alone, bitter, hallow, and like a pariah. All anyone talks about is how I killed Katie, almost killed her brother, and won’t ever, in a million years, stay clean. As winter approaches, I wonder if I’ll make it through to the other side. Back to the meadow with the sweet-smelling grass and chicory. I don’t think I will. I think all I’ll ever know now is this empty life. The taste of weed on my lips.
Will Dandelion break free of the depression pulling her down? Are drugs, alcohol, and sex the only answers that ever make sense to her? Could redemption be only one more turn away? Come back to Greenside and see how Dani fairs in book 2 of the Dandelion Jane series.
