Pan starts sixth grade. But is she ready for sixth grade?
Pan wakes up late and rushes to school, angering her teacher, and is sent to detention. Pan practically cries, but a girl, also in detention, says it's not a big deal, and she had been in detention for nearly setting fire to the whole school. Her name is Dawn, but she likes to be called Buster. Pan feels that she's too much of a troublemaker. She tries to ignore Buster, who keeps passing notes to her, and runs home quickly.
