Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

"That was it. That was all of it.  A grace so ordinary there was no reason at all to remember it.  Yet I have never across the forty years since it was spoken forgotten a single word."  New Bremen, Minnesota, 1961.  It was a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president.  But for 13-year-old Frank Drum it was a summer in which death visited in several forms.  Accident.  Nature.  Suicide.  Murder.  Frank looks forward to the summer, but then tragedy strikes his family.  Told from Frank's perspective, this is the story of a boy at the door of manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him.

Britt-Marie was Here by Fredrik Backman

Britt-Marie can't stand a mess or disorganization.  These are unforgivable sins.  She is not one to judge others.  It's just that sometimes people interpret her helpful suggestions as criticisms.  But hidden inside the socially awkward, fussy busybody is a woman who has a warmer heart than anyone around her realizes.  When Britt-Marie walks out on her cheating husband, she finds work in the backwater town of Borg as the caretaker of a soon-to-be demolished recreation center and the impossible task of leading the untalented children's soccer team to victory.
