More About My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman
 
 
 
Overview
From the author of the internationally bestselling "A Man Called Ove," a charming, warmhearted novel about a young girl whose grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters, sending her on a journey that brings to life the world of her grandmother's fairy tales.
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy, standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-men-who-want-to-talk-about-Jesus-crazy. She is also Elsa's best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother's stories, in the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.
When Elsa's grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa's greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother's letters lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and totally ordinary old crones, but also to the truth about fairytales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.
"My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry "is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backman's internationally bestselling debut novel, "A Man Called Ove." It is a story about life and death and an ode to one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.
