'Wonderful' Rosie Walsh

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 supermarkets, but not much about life – develops 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 . . .

Wonderful and insightful

Well written and very enjoyable. Elvira is a fascinating character and I very much enjoyed her alternative view of the world. I’d highly recommend this as one of the better books I’ve read recently.

Lovely, meaningful story

I'm sorry it's finished, I enjoyed meeting Elvira so much. I am totally going to share this book with an autism group that I volunteer at.
