Going Vintage - Lindsey Leavitt
Published: March 26th 2013
Going Vintage
When Mallory discovers that her boyfriend, Jeremy, is cheating on her with an online girlfriend, she swears off boys. She also swears off modern technology. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in 1962, Mallory decides to "go vintage" and return to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn't cheat on you online). She sets out to complete grandma's list: run for pep club secretary, host a dinner party, sew a homecoming dress, find a steady, do something dangerous. But the list is trickier than it looks. And obviously finding a steady is out . . . no matter how good Oliver (Jeremy's cousin) smells. But with the help of her sister, she'll get it done. Somehow. Lindsey Leavitt perfectly pairs heartfelt family moments, laugh-out-loud humor, and a little bit of romance in this delightful contemporary novel.

I have read one of Lindsey's books, called Princess for Hire, and I really enjoyed it. I love contemporary YA novels with great covers, a great storyline and a great message, and this book looks like it will fit the bill. I love the story idea, and I must admit I haven't really read a vintage type book before. I also love the way the green and pink contrast together

  1. Great to see a new face on Wishlist Wednesday!
    I requested this one on NetGalley, but got turned down because I'm from the UK, not the USA. Will be getting it when it comes out though.
    Great choice!
