Reviews
"Every bit as churlish but lovable as Backman's cantankerous protagonist in his debut, A Man Called Ove (2014), precocious Elsa will easily work her way into the hearts of readers who like characters with spunk to spare. A delectable homage to the power of stories to comfort and heal, Backman's tender tale of the touching relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter is a tribute to the everlasting bonds of deep family ties."-- "Booklist (starred)"
"Full of heart, hope, forgiveness, and the embracing of differences, Elsa's story is one that sticks with you long after you've turned the last page."-- "Library Journal"
"Firmly in league with Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman. A touching, sometimes funny, often wise portrait of grief."

-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Bring tissues when you start My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry, but bring your funnybone, too. It's that kind of book - one that, if you miss it, you'll never forgive yourself."-- "Business Insider"
"I can't remember the last time that I read a book where I alternately cried and laughed, and sometimes both at the same time."--Shelf Awareness
"In his second offering, Backman (A Man Called Ove) continues to write with the same whimsical charm and warm heart as in his debut."-- "Publishers Weekly"
