Happy New Year, Julie

Julie knows the holidays will be difficult this year, but when her sister, Tracy, refuses to go to Dad’s house for Christmas, Julie feels as if her family is falling apart.

Julie tries to share Ivy’s excitement, but her heart sinks—with Mom, Dad, and Tracy there, how will they all get along?
