Alexander has just received some really bad news. His dad has taken a job in a city a thousand miles away, which means that he and his family are going to have to move to a whole new city. And even though his mom says, "Wait, you'll like it," Alexander already knows that he'll hate it. He can't bear to leave the people and places he loves, so he decides that he won't move. First he tries to live with three different neighbors. Then he tries to build a tent so he can live by himself. Then he decides he'll hide so that his parents'll never find him, but that doesn't work out either. With a little help from his mom and dad and even his bossy older brothers they help him to understand that home is "where your family is, where you're with the people who love you best of all."
