Mara isn't a slut; she just can't find what she wants.  She wants to forget her mother's death, her father's hypocrisy, and the plane crash that follows her.  As a child she couldn't understand why the grass never got cut, and now as she gropes her way through university life, all those weeds, those dandelions, have stayed with her, haunting her dreams.

She can't see a way out of her dark hole until she gets hit by a car on an Ottawa street and starts spending time with Jack, the guy behind the wheel.  Kind, thoughtful, and a virgin - he's the last person she'd ever expected to fall for.

As she opens up to Jack, the wounds she’d been trying to ignore surface, and she’s forced to finally choose between running from or facing the past that’s been haunting her all her life.  Through nights out looking for release to the ultimate event that forces her to face herself, Mara finally learns the truth about dandelions.
