    My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman This charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove focuses on Elsa, who 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. When her grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, the instructions lead Elsa to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms. It is a story about life and death and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different. Registration is not required.
