My Grandmother Asked me to Tell you She's Sorry is a story about a family. Like a lot of stories are. But don't for one minute think that when you read this you will be reading any old ordinary story. The main character is a young girl, (my favorite kind of narrator) and it includes fairy tales, a treasure hunt, a giant dog who eats dreams, super heroes, prams, and references to Harry Potter.
But you should read this book mostly because it will fill your heart. It gets my absolute highest recommendation. Favorite book so far this year.
