Summary
  • "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; her grandmother is seventy-seven years old. She is 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, the 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

Summary
Bullied at school and left out at home, seven-year-old Elsa relies on her grandmother for love and attention, and she is only too happy to provide it. Granny weaves tall tales of the Land of Almost-Awake, and sets up a quest for Elsa to undertake so that she will not be so alone after Granny, who has cancer, dies. Precocious Elsa delivers the letters Granny has left, and as she does so discovers that her neighbors seem to embody characteristics of the creatures from the Land of Almost Awake... -- Description by Shauna Griffin
