The Kingdom of Childhood by Rebecca Coleman. 1 out of 5 stars. Did not enjoy this novel because the narrator/main character was unlikeable. Had a hard time relating to her and didn't understand her motives.
A Man Called Ove, by Fredrick Backman. (Atria Books, A curmudgeon hides a terrible personal loss beneath a cranky and short-tempered exterior while clashing with new neighbors, a boisterous family whose chattiness and habits lead to unexpected friendship.
