My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by Frederik Backman

“Only different people change the world,” Granny used to say. “No one normal has ever changed a crapping thing.” 
― Fredrik BackmanMy Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry

November 19th @ 10:00 am in the Havelock Public Library

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.
