  • Synopsis

    Life is a dream for Julie-Anne as long as she stays in her room and reads the latest issue of Yours, Truly magazine. Her mum, Sue, wishes they could be a proper family. But things haven't worked out that way. Julie-Anne's friend, Nicki, is teetering on the verge of disaster. Nicki's boyfriend, Jason, is giving her a hard time and Nicki's brother, Tony, is in a right mess.
