We rock! We rock!

I am outta here!

Dear Sara.

Thanks for being so special.



- So my mom took away my iPod.

- No way.

Can you believe it? For a whole month.

I don't know how I'm gonna live without it.

- Rachel?

- But you still have your Blackberry, right?

- Yeah.

- Rachel?

Do you think you could sign

my yearbook?

- Don't have a pen. Sorry.

- Right.

I can't believe she just asked me that.

- Thanks, Fiona.

- Have a super summer.



Could you sign my yearbook?

Oh, I'll have to get

back to you on that.


Uh, Sara, could you please

just give me a mercy signing?


- Who are you?

- Moondance Alexander.

- What grade are you in?

- Ninth.

I'm just really short.

Thank you.

Well, have a good summer.

See you later.

Oh, there's Fiona.

- Hey, girls.

- Hey.

Megan, my gum is stale.

And... I'm supposed to do what?

Duh! Kleenex.

- Don't have one, Fiona.

- Don't look at me.

- Hey, Moonwalk.

- Hi. Well, it-it's Moondance, actually.

Whatever. Do you want me

to sign your year book?

Yeah. Yeah, that'd be great.

- Cute shirt, Moondance.

- Oh, totally.

- Thanks.

- Is it vintage?

Um, I don't think so.


I had onejust like it...

when I was 12.

- There you go.

- Thanks.

Hey, Josh. Did you sign

Moondance's yearbook?

Um, no, not yet.

- Oh, no.

- Oh! That's foul.

What a freak!

Hey, Moondance.

Is it true your middle name is Uranus?

Hey, man!

(# Can't hold on to the words)

(# I seem to be so ordinary)

(# Not like I've everheard)

(# It seems to be the same old story)

(# No more waiting patiently)

(# For you to make a fool of me)

(# So I can't hold on)

(# So I will finally walk away)

(# And call it a day)

(# And call it a day)

(# Call it a day))

Hi, Daddy.

School's out today and I made

a complete idiot of myself again.

I won't go into all the gory details,

but trust me.

It was really horrific.

And, in case you were wondering...

my friend roster

is at an all-time low.

I don't mean to complain.

It's just...

you're the only one I can tell.

Mom would only flip out

and try to fix it.

She keeps saying that I'm different because

I'm destined for something special.

Only wish I knew what

that something was.

That way it could start happening.

Like... now.

Maybe you could put in

a rush order for me?


I gotta go...

but thanks for listening, Dad.

You always make me feel better.

I love you.

- Hi.

- Hello.

Hi, Mr. McClancy.

Oh, hello, Moondance.

Well, I see you got through

another year of school.

Yes, thank goodness.

I don't think I could have lasted another day.

Oh. Well, you've got

the whole summer ahead for fun.

- You got any big plans?

- No.

- I think I'm just gonna focus on my work.

- Your work?

Well, that- that's good.

Well, I got a couple of deliveries here for you.

One of 'em goes to

your mama's studio.

And these are horse supplements

that, uh, go to this address.

Now, it's on the edge of town, so I drew

a little map for you on the back of the receipt.

- Okay.

- And you can drop it off there.

If there's no one around,

you can just drop it in the mailbox, okay?

Sounds good.

Thanks, Mr. McClancy.


Yes, yes.

Let's see. Oh.

Very... nice, Rose.

But I'm still sensing

some anger in your work.

I tried to soften the eyes a little.

Yes, and that- and that helped.

I would just love to see you

branch out a little.

Maybe try a more uplifting

subject matter.

I paint what I feel.

Okay then.

Oh, Ben, that is really very nice.

- Oh, uh, thank you, Gelsey.

- That was great choice of colors.

- Hey, Mom.
