Precocious, feisty, almost 8-year-old Elsa only has one friend: her granny. Granny has instilled in Elsa a belief that she is different, and that this is a good thing. Granny would know. From midnight zoo break-ins to shooting neighbors with her paintball gun, Granny's hijinks constantly antagonize those around her. As the story unravels, Elsa is given a task that compels her to get to know her neighbors and learn that everyone has a history. Heartwarming and hilarious in equal measure.
