Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in her landlady mother’s absence.

    Inspireret af en sand historie har Jamie Ford skrevet en vidunderlig bittersød roman om at finde kærligheden i en verden, hvor alt - også mennesker - er til salg. Seattle 1909. For den halvkinesiske børnehjemsdreng Ernest virker tilbuddet om at besøge den store verdensudstilling som noget af en gave, men midt i al hurlumhejet med eksotiske udstillinger, fyrværkeri og pariserhjul opdager han, at det i virkeligheden er ham, der er gaven. Dagens store begivenhed er bortlodningen af 'en sund og rask dreng til et godt hjem' - ham!
