Elsa is a typical fifteen-year-old growing up in the early 1960s. Her world revolves around independence, boys, and being popular at school, despite growing concerns surrounding the Cuban missile crisis. In fact, this is Elsa's opportunity to let loose before the world blows up. Knee-deep in teenage angst, her mission is clear: get drunk for the first time and lose her virginity. Though Elsa is old enough to feel the tense political climate, she is young enough to believe there might be a cure for everything. A comedic and compassionate sequel to Ardal's award-winning You Fancy Yourself, The Cure for Everything is a coming-of-age story about a teenager who discovers that the world is more complex than she could have imagined.
