"Here we go! First day at one of the most prestigious art schools in the country."
"I can do this. I can do this."
"Hello? Lovebirds. Am I invisible?"
"Excuse me? Hello? Real Cinderella standing right here."
"A break?! We cannot afford a break right now!"
"What is she trying to do to me?"
"Something's up. Cassandra
never just says hi. Especially to a non-prima."
"I cannot believe Carly told on me."
"I'm super excited to be back! The doctor took my x-ray's yesterday and my cast is coming off this week! The only thing I'm not excited for..."
"It's been 3 weeks, 4 days, 6 hours and 10 minutes of sitting on the sidelines, taking notes and not dancing."
"Except Cee can't know Sasha kissed me."
"At least Carly and I are in a good place even if our dance crews are mortal enemies."
"Those dancers must be the Primas
: the best dancers in the school!"
"Bravery is rewarded. I have to be brave."
"I think no matter what he's wearing, all I see is him rejecting me."
"Only that we can't be friends anymore."
"That girl's going down!"
"Green juice for the Primas. Hunter green, not forest. Just the way Cassandra likes it."
"I know he probably thinks I'm like too cool of something but my situation is complicated."
"I told you it was complicated."
's been giving me a special treatment because I'm sick. But I don't want the whole school thinking I'm a teacher's pet."
"Please say no. Please say no."
"I guess you should be careful what you wish for. But, detention isn't so bad."
"So, it turns out that Keaton doesn't have a baseball diamond."
"It might sound lame but hanging out with Jax makes me feel like I'm not sick."
"I signed out the room. Not her. No way Cake Thief's going anywhere."
"This could really backfire."
"Did she just say what I think she said?"
"Great. Does the entire school know I got dizzied by Julie?"
"Why did I just say that in front of Alya?"
"Maybe she didn't notice."
"The last couple weeks had been Da Boheme this and Da Boheme that and it's driving me crazy."
"Please don't make me a liar, Alya."
"I am the worst person of all time."
"I have a choice. Break her heart or give her hope."
"I thought that maybe this is for real."
"Of course I remember. I remember lying to protect Bianca's feelings."
"She's back? She's back!"
"Way easier said than done."
"She's Chase from Chase & Chance. I love that show! I mean, how much more intimidating can this day get?"
"He's super cute and really nice. I'm in trouble."
"Of course she picks me. Just my luck."
"I can't believe this is happening again."
"I'm really starting to hate this girl."
"And it looks like I just became enemy number one."
"I don't know what makes me more nervous. Auditioning for Bianca's mom or Bianca being nice to me."
"It's like they think I'm Katy Perry
or Selena Gomez
or Bianca Blackwell. But that's silly. I'm just Alya. Alya Kendrick. I'm not famous. I'm not even popular."
"Confidence, Alya! Confidence!"
"Okay. The old Alya would assume he didn't want to talk to me, that he thought he was too cool for me, but what would the new Alya do? This."
"I just need to get through this and then never talk to Miles again. I guess the new Alya isn't as smart as she thought."
"A tour? I don't know. I mean, it's a huge opportunity but so is Keaton. But I can't just walk away from everything. Can I?"
"It all comes down to choices. There are big ones and small ones and they all have consequences. But at the end of the day, it's our choices that define us."
"Sometimes we have to make hard choices and see where they can take us. Take a leap of faith even if we don't know where we're going to land."
"Please say yes. Please say yes!"
"In here, it just feels like a normal day, but it's not. Because right now out there, Miles is in surgery. And I know he's gonna be okay but what if... [sigh] I need to keep my mind on the work."
"I can honestly say he's my best friend."
"This is not okay. I don't know what's going on with Austin and Denzel but something doesn't feel right."
"I'm sorry. From, Austin."
"All I can think about is the moment that Austin hit his head. What he did to me, to Denzel and Scarlett, it wasn't cool. But what kind of person am I if I don't text him back to see if he's okay?"
"Yes. Miles was jealous of Austin. But things are better now. We had a bumpy patch and now he trusts me. We trust each other."
"Who does this guy think he is? He doesn't watch TV?! [scoffs] I mean, even his haircut reeks of pretention."
"Please say yes. Please say yes."
"Detention is the worst."
"I hope he's okay. I mean, it must be tough living with a disease like that."
"If people know that I take piano, flute, and trombone lessons everyday, what would they think?"
"Dude is a girl magnet. What's he got that I don't? Certainly not pencils."
"When I found out Miles was sick, I felt sorry for him. Not that he knows what I know but now, it's nice to have an actual friend around here."
"3 new songs by Friday?! That's impossible. But what kind of jerk says no to a sick friend?"
"I'm such an idiot. (sigh) Miles… He might not be here next year."
"Where did she get those crispy samples?"
"Please let it rain today."
"I never thought I'd say this, but I miss the annoying Bianca."
"So, I've been thinking about Bianca. I like her a lot. I think I'm gonna ask her out."
"Dude! Just take a hint!"
"Miles can tell himself whatever he wants but there is a definite sparkage in those hey's."
"They're OTP. Calling it now. I know. I've become Sappy Sapperton. But give me a break. I just had my heart broken. Okay?"
"I was just dumped by my girlfriend and now my best friend is having a kidney transplant. How optimistic can I be?"
"Wait a second. Does Bianca- Whoa."
"Keep on digging, Jaxy boy. Keep on digging."
"Truth: I've been auditioning since I was 3. That's not an exaggeration. I'm a professional. I don't need to be taking a tutorial on auditioning! I'd be teaching it!"
"I'm sure the ideas will come. How hard can this be?"
"Miles is into me. I can tell."
"64%?! At this school, that's basically an F."
"Should I say something? Tell them it's me?"
"Sing something, Bianca! Anything! Make a sound come out of your mouth!"
"Seriously, that's just silly. I mean, yes, he's nice and thoughtful but he's so annoying. And sure, he can be cute but he's so full of himself. But so am I, I guess. Oh, no."
"Yes, I missed him. I almost texted him like 100 times but I didn't. I'm not a stalker. Anyway, today's the day. The day I tell Jackson Gardner I like him."
"Seriously? What's wrong with me? Am I 8?"
"I am done with boys. Done. As friends, as more than friends, as anything! NO MORE BOYS!"
"I guess I got what I wanted."
"You know. The exact opposite of how Jax feels. I have to talk to him."
"Jax cannot find out this way!"
"I love this school and I love dancing, but once in a while it would be nice to be noticed."
"Who do I want to be and who do I not want to be?"
"Except no one can know I… Never mind."
"Jax knows Diamondmind, and he owed me one."
"My spidey senses are tingling! I write TMK
, Keaton's gossip blog and yes, it's the best!"
"I have never felt so used. Totally awesome!"
"The pants. They're too… They don't fit. But I don't want to tell him because it's, well, embarrassing."
"She should've been a motivational speaker."
"Except Cee can't know I kissed Vee."
"If Carly's not hurt, Vee won't be mad. Carly's fine. I still have to find out who sent those texts and put out that blog post. But maybe it's good that the secret's out."
"Every month, Keaton insists we do mentorship classes. Yes, I'm a mentor. I mean, I'm Scarlett the Starlet. How could I not be? Today's topic: vocal audition."
"Okay. I know I shouldn't get in the middle of things with these two but getting in the middle of things is kind of my thing.
"Right. Because when you're a new kid at a new school, the first thing you want to do is to bare your soul to a bunch of total strangers."
"Let's get real; A cake is a cake."
"I don't know why this means so much to her. But if I get the feeling that this doesn't work, Julie might have a nervous breakdown. So, let's look on the bright side and be positive. Right?"
"What is she talking about? There is no plan C."
"So apparently, Julie's plan C is by turning freshman orientation into a Keaton dance-off. Not a bad idea."
"Welcome to Movement for Non-Movers AKA the worst class ever!"
"Julie?! I should've shuffled harder."
"I've known Julie for a year and a half and I still don't know her know her. You know what I mean?"
"[sighs] Why am I wasting my time? Julie dresses like a different person everyday. This assignment is impossible. I'm just gonna phone it in."
"Ugh! This project is so dumb."
"Maybe this project isn't so dumb."
"Now I can't phone it in. I'll look like a total jerk. From now on, I'm 100% committed to studying Julie."
"I was here until 8:00pm last night observing Julie and then I had to wake up at 6:00am to beat her in. What is her deal? No one loves school this much."
"I just took them out of the garbage!"
"The craziest thing about this school is you find friends the most unlikely of places."
"Groups aren't horrible, I guess."
"Even Beyoncé started out in Destiny's Child."
"With Julie gone, I'm the new student council president and I'm gonna make sure we have an awesome semester."
"It's a great job! I love it. And now that Julie's back, I have to give it up?"
"I get to keep being prez! Yay!"
"What happened to silent observer?"
! Super famous, super gorgeous! And who needs Denzel's video when I can look at a face like that?"
"Um, I'm adopted. So, my musical roots are unknown. But I'll, figure this out. It's for Ryland Marcus."
"Where did that come from?"
"This is so hard for her. I know but this letter is too big to keep for my sister. She has a right to know."
"It's true. He didn't. He fired me from the music video. But honestly, it doesn't matter anymore."
"C'mon Scarlett. Think of something."
"I'm just being paranoid. It's probably nothing."
"Nerves?! It's not nerves. It can't be. Every fiber in my body is telling me it's- No. I'm fine. I can't go there. It's nerves."
"She's right. I am spectacular at one thing. And now, that one thing might be gone."
"[sigh] This is going to be interesting."
"Well, this is gonna be great."
"Another node scare. She does this all the time."
"He's only reminded me 100 times!"
"I can't believe I'm gonna do this."
"Reminder: I am DJ Diamond Mind and I just left my uncle the weirdest voicemail ever."
"I've been killing myself to make each track on DJ Diamondmind's new album something totally original. It's finally paying off."
"Even if they did, would it be so bad?"
"I promise I wouldn't get mad."
"What's to be curious about? I know who my parents are. Nicholas
and Amy Dunn
. They live on 484 Stonemill Crescent and have an inexplicable love of garden gnomes and mashed potatoes."
"Denzel's going to be devastated that Scarlett can't sing for the live finale. But what choice do we have?"
"[explosion sounds] This explains so much!"
"14's not looking so bad now!"
"Relationship with hero is back on track!"
"PSATs, or as some like to call it: P-S-A-Ts. It stands for Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test."
"It was totally a firing. I feel awful."
"C'mon Denzel. He deserves it."
"Austin got out of the hospital and he didn't have a concussion. Thank goodness he's gonna be fine. I have meetings with Durani on a regular basis and have detention. Lots of detention. But besides that, things are starting to be normal."
