Description:
Translated from the Swedish
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 runs to her grandmother's stories, to the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas. There, everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal. So when Elsa's grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has hurt, it marks the beginning of Elsa's greatest adventure. 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.
