Alfie's attic is tucked away right at the top of the house, and it's all his - his own space, away from his nagging mother and school troubles, where he can draw cartoons to his heart's content. However bad his day is, Alfie knows he can always come back to the safety of his own room - until the day he hears his big brother Bubba is going to move back home with his wife. The house is full enough already, and it will mean Alfie moving in with his sister.
Bubba is everything Alfie isn't - loud, sporty and confident. Alfie can't bear the thought of giving up his private world to his brother, but it looks as if he has no choice... or has he?
