Moving As A Child Part 1 Mini-Story Lesson

Hello and welcome to the mini-story lesson for the conversation “Moving As A Child Part 1.” Let’s get started with the story.

Alex is twelve years old. He is an army brat. His dad joined the Army before he was born.

Alex and his parents had lived on the moon for two years. Then, out of the blue, they moved to America.

Right off the bat, he hated it. The town they moved to was rural, so it was a culture shock after living on the moon. Everyone at school knew he was the new kid on the block. He did not have any friends.
