Frida is very superstitious. So she is alarmed when she joins a new class and finds she is the thirteenth in a class of twelve students. She thinks this will bring bad luck, and many of her interactions with the other students do seem to bring unlucky consequences. Then Frida finds out there was another student who had been absent from school before she joined the class. So she was not the thirteenth after all, and all the ‘bad luck’ was nothing but coincidence.
