It's set in 1993, when 8-year-old Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez lives alone with her parents in the outskirts of the fictional town of Openfields, Sweden. Amidst a dysfunctional home, we discover that this is the day we will die, but that if we play the game we will earn happiness for our mother.
"There is no right or wrong, only consequences," says the narrator as we take on the challenge. Through twists and turns we learn more about her family, and have a window into a child's eye view of her experience of this. We walk in the shoes of a young protagonist who has minimal power to effect the world or the plot.
It's a chance to face the disconnection between what children deserve in life and what many of them have in reality. But also, we discover how resilient the young girl is in her innocent hope, and how she is drawn to both the morbid and the charming. In spite of everything, she keeps getting up, and trying again, which makes it all the more poignant.
