The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr

The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr

The Seven Imperfect Rules of Elvira Carr is part mystery, part social handbook, about finding your way in the world when nothing in that world makes sense except biscuits and Coronation Street!

Elvira Carr is twenty-seven and neuro-atypical. Her father – who she suspects was in the secret service – has passed away and, after several Unfortunate Incidents growing up, she now spends most of her time at home with her overbearing mother. But when her mother has a stroke and is taken into care, Elvira is suddenly forced to look after herself or risk ending up in Sheltered Accommodation. Armed with her Seven Rules, which she puts together after online research, Elvira hopes to learn how to navigate a world that’s full of people she doesn’t understand. Not even the Seven Rules can help her, however, when she discovers that everything she thought she knew about her father was a lie, and is faced with solving a mystery she didn’t even know existed . . .
