First, his mom's a total flake. All Moonbeam wants is to be able to play basketball, eat junk food instead of macrobiotic vegetable souffle with pureed tofu sauce, go to a regular school with regular kids, and meet girls.

Until he realizes that it's not what you're called that counts, but who you are. Meeting girls and going to school and hanging out with friends shouldn't be that tough. But it is if you're fifteen and you're biracial and your name is Moonbeam and you live on a commune with your mother and a bunch of granola-munching, tie-dyed, tofu-eating, sandal-wearing hippies!
