Funny, heart-warming and ultimately triumphant, The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr by Frances Maynard is the perfect story for anyone who doesn't quite fit in - and for everyone who chooses not to. Elvira Carr is twenty-seven, neuro-atypical, and has never lived alone.
But her father - who she suspects was in the secret service - is dead, and when her mother has a stroke and is taken into care, Elvira suddenly finds herself home alone.
In order to cope, Elvira - who knows a lot about biscuits and floors, but not much about life - develops a list of seven rules for interacting with others.
Not even her rules can help her, however, when she's faced with solving a mystery she didn't know existed . . .
