2015.11.30 Julian Review Icon2015.11.27 Extra Seats Added IconDEJulian is an intelligent but highly mischievous 14-year old boy. His life is a total disaster and absolutely not cool at all. He is performing poorly at school and he is dying to form part of a cool clan at school but his efforts prove futile.

To make matters worse, his parents have recently separated. But Julian has a very big craze for a certain no-fear, courageous and intelligent fictional character - Justin Artio. In other words, he would like to be someone whom he actually is not. Matters get even more complicated when his mother starts seeing someone else, the cool clan at school starts noticing him and his O-Levels are round the corner. Julian has to take critical decisions.

But which decisions? How? And more importantly, what would Justin Artio would have done?
