Britt-Marie Was Here, Fredrik Backman
This heart-warming story is the perfect read for anyone on the precipice of a life-changing decision. Whether you identify with socially awkward Britt-Marie's impulse to clean (I did... I really did), Fredrik Backman cast of lovable misfits will draw you in and place you squarely in the middle of run-down Borg, a town that could be any town. Backman's sweet story-telling will have you rooting for Britt-Marie and if a loved one needs a nudge toward a hard decision, this book is that nudge.
A tale for anyone who thinks people never change, Britt-Marie will convince you it's never too late to live the life you always wanted (or didn't even know you did). This book left me feeling warm inside and ready to pick up Backman's latest, Bear Town.
