My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~


Synopsis (from Amazon):  A charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove.

Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy—as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers 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 instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales 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 bestselling debut novel, A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life and death and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.



One (or more) Sentence Summary:   I found this in my draft folder and I am not sure how I overlooked it.  I read My Grandmother Aksed Me To Tell You She's Sorry when it first came out.  I still recommend it to people who haven't read it.  Absolutely loved it.  It is a MUST-READ.  A beautiful and amazing book that will make you laugh and cry.  In such awe of Fredrik's talent!
