Amee: The Winners by Fredrik Backman (humorous)

Backman, author of The Man Called Ove, completes the Beartown trilogy with

The Winners. Backman has created interesting characters and intertwined lives

in a small hockey-loving, forest town. The story has both happy and sad moments which made it hard to put down. If you enjoyed A Man Called Ove, give this trilogy a try.
