SYNOPSIS: Twelve-year-old Melissa lives her life in her room, surrounded by electronics and a sense of self- importance. Her single mom? She's lucky to get the time of day. But when a Special News Report interrupts regular programming, Melissa tunes in to dreamland, entering a TV show world starring herself. Not only does she have an annoying sitcom family, she has humanized electronics that give her grief about her lack of a life. The girl wants out — but how? Only after she realizes the show's not just about her does Melissa awaken to the prospect of stepping outside of herself, eager to live life in the real world. Winner of the Marilyn Hall Award.
