- [Indy Voiceover]

My life was perfect.

I had an incredible

mom who loved me.

I was her princess and she

kept me safe from everything.

The only pain I ever knew was

when I tripped and skinned

my knee but my mom was always

there to make it all better.

Dad left before I was

born so it's always

I actually believed that

until two years later

when I learned what

pain really was.

The day my mom left, too.


- That funeral was way too long.

She didn't do

squat with her life

you think that they could've

shortened all that talk.

- I'm hungry.

- Oh, I know, the

food was terrible.

Let's go see what we

have in the fridge.

And here's your room.

Our neighbor's grandmother

died so they gave us her bed

so you be sure to be grateful.

- Okay.

- I know it's a

little plain right now

but tomorrow morning

we'll talk to Uncle David

and see what he

thinks about letting

you decorate a little

bit, how's that?

Won't that be nice?

- Okay.

- Look, I understand

that your mom just died

but I will not have

you moping around.

You will have chores

to do and you'll

be expected to help

around the house.

- Okay.

- And you will be

keeping this room clean.

You're 10 years old, there's

no excuse for messiness.

- Okay.

- All right, well, we will talk

about your chores

in the morning.


- Goodnight.

(door slamming)

(light music)

(alarm beeping)

- Well, Mrs. Wiggins, we

can't stay in bed all day.

Time to get up.

- Mom, my phone screen cracked.

- Well honey, get a new

one right after school.

- Kaitlyn, you want it?

- Ew, no.


- Can I have it?

- Indy, hurry up.

I have an early

morning meeting today.

- Sorry, I...

- [Clarise] Bye, girls,

have a great day.

- [Kaitlyn] Oh, I'm going

shopping with Jayda after.

- Okay, have a great time.

Good morning, Mrs. Whitman.

- [Indy Voiceover] This is life.

Every school has their

social stereotypes

like the band geeks, the

jocks, the underachievers,

I guess I fit in with the

too-normal-to-classify kids.

Certainly not with

the popular crowd.

I'll leave that

to Bryant Bailey.

Ugh, so annoying.

Some girls throw themselves

at Bryant all the time

and I really don't

understand it.

Jayda and Kaitlyn especially.

But there's a lot I

don't get about them.

That one's Bryant's

sister, MacKenzie.

I don't know her but

she seems decent.

At least she has a reason

to be around Bryant.

- So some of you haven't--

- [Indy Voiceover] Moving on

then, it's class after class.



and P.E.

Ugh, how I hate P.E.

And I get this every day.

They get to eat out

every day but Clarise

never gives me money for that.

- [Maxton] Hey, Indy.

- Hi.

- [Indy Voiceover]

And that's Maxton,

he keeps me sane, as

best friends should.

(bell ringing)

And that's my life

day in and day out.

Isn't it grand?

I mean, it's not perfect

but whose life is?

(alarm beeping)

Sometimes I wonder

what it would be

like if Mom were still alive.

With her I felt my

life was perfect.

- Well, this is awful.

You must've learned to

cook from your mother.


- [Indy Voiceover] But

after she died I didn't

expect that to stay the same,

but I also didn't

expect it to get worse.

- [Kaitlyn] Come on,

Jayda, we're gonna be late.

- I'm coming.

(Mrs. Wiggins meowing)

(tires screeching)

- [Indy] No!

- I'm so sorry.


I didn't mean to,

I didn't even s...

I'm so sorry.

- [Jayda] It was fabulous of you

to stop by the

other day, Bryant.

- Yeah, you should

come by more often.

- I didn't stop by,
