Twelve-year-old Ambrose Bukowski and his widowed, overprotective mother move frequently. When he almost dies after he bites into a peanut that bullies put in his sandwich, just to see if he is really allergic, Irene has had enough, and she decides to homeschool him.
While she teaches at night, Ambrose discovers that he and his neighbor both love Scrabble, so, without his mother's knowledge, he talks Cosmo into taking him to a Scrabble Club. Will they move again when Ambrose's mother finds out?
