Seven-year-old Elsa is intelligent and different, but that’s the very reason she doesn’t have any friends except for her grandmother. Her grandmother, too, is different and chaotic, and she is proof that everyone doesn’t need to fit in and that there is nothing wrong with being different. Elsa’s grandmother is her best and only friend, but when she dies, she leaves Elsa with a last adventure. She leaves Elsa with letters that Elsa needs to deliver, and those letters contain apologies from her grandmother to seven people.

The story follows Elsa on her journey of delivering the letters and, through that, learning about the people around her and her grandmother’s history. This story follows this little girl as she navigates and deals with grief, and the exploration of human emotions is done beautifully here. Elsa’s grandmother introduced her to an imaginary world of fairytales, but as she sends out those letters and uncovers histories, she realizes those fairytales were influenced by those real-life people her grandmother wanted to apologize to. This book follows quite a few characters, and all of their stories are intertwined in the end. This book does an amazing job at characterization and portrays human flaws in a way that makes those characters seem like real, living people. The book is heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. This is truly a beautiful story.
