    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!
