Edit My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She 's Sorry written by Fredrik Backman, tells the story of seven (almost eight) year-old Elsa who 's recently deceased grandmother sent her out on a grand treasure hunt to deliver letters to people she wanted to apologizes to. Set between the real world and the fantasy world of the Land-of-Almost-Awake, Elsa must journey to find out what kind of person her grandmother was before she was born. The shining aspect of the story is the well developed characters and how everything is connected back to the fantasy land that Elsa 's grandmother created.

It is about the lessons a grandchild must learn about their parents and grandparents, and how not everything, or everyone, is what it seems at first glance.
