Plot Synopsis

Shy high school student Joy Hockstatter has been trying to help her dad, Bob, hold the family together after her mother's death a few years earlier. Although only 15, she has tried to become a kind of surrogate mom to her brothers. Every day she looks across the street at the perfect house and family of the Wellmans. During the holidays, she wishes she could have a "perfect life" like the one she sees the Wellmans have. When a freak accident of mystical proportions suddenly grants her wish, she instantly becomes part of the Wellman family. She wakes up as one of the Wellmans with a new mother, father and older sister. Her new life initially seems to have changed for the better, only now Bob and her brothers have taken a huge turn for the worse and the only one who recognizes Joy from her previous life is her old dog, Levi. She soon discovers that her new life isn't exactly how she was expecting it to be.
