Britt-Mari lättar sitt hjärta ("The Confidences of Britt-Mari") was Astrid Lindgren’s debut book, and it won her 2nd prize in Rabén & Sjögren’s competition for the best girls’ book in 1944. In the book, Britt-Mari gets a pen-friend so as to have some sensible use for her very own typewriter. And she tells her pen-friend, Kajsa all about her great, big, messy, happy family, the agonies of love and the eventful life she lives in Ekeliden Cottage in Småstad.
