Book Review

Publisher's Note:

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.…

Going Vintage

by Lindsey Leavitt

Overall Book Review:

I loved this book! Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt is an extremely relatable and, yet, unique book. It was a joy to read!  The characters are well-rounded and original; they are stereotypical enough to be quickly relatable, but also, each character has individually realistic traits. The plotline and the word-age in this book are both fresh and innovative. I had a very easy time reading this book, and actually looked forward to continuing reading the next chapters. I would recommend this to teens who love a little romance and a lot of self-discovery and empowerment, full of teenage drama.

About the Reviewer

Ever since I was little, reading has been a huge part of my life, and even now I find it is one of my favorite things to do! Usually when I go to the library, I end up leaving with embarrassingly huge stacks of books, which I usually finish within the week. I’ll read almost any genre, though I prefer fantasy and mystery – Sarah Beth Durst and Shannon Hale being some of my favorite authors.
