My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
Though Elsa is only almost-eight-years-old, she already knows a lot. Her granny has taught her all about the kingdoms of the Land of Almost Awake, how to speak a secret language, and to never let anyone treat her badly for being different. But she never taught Elsa how to go on without her. All Elsa has now is a letter she has to deliver to The Monster who lives in the flat on the first floor of their house. But that letter turns out to be the beginning of an adventure Elsa never wanted and never knew she needed. As she delivers letters and apologies, Elsa learns granny’s most valuable lesson of all.
A beautiful and heartbreaking story for readers in junior high and up.
