The Cure for Everything by Maja Ardal
Elsa is a typical fifteen-year old growing up in the early 1960's. Her world revolves around independence, boys, and being popular at school, despite growing concerns surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis. Knee-deep in teenage angst, her mission is clear: get drunk for the first time and lose her virginity before the world blows up. 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 that she could have imagined.
