Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

Going VintageWhen Mallory’s boyfriend, Jeremy, cheats on her with an online girlfriend, Mallory decides the best way to de-Jeremy her life is to de-modernize things too. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in1962, Mallory swears off technology and returns to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn’t cheat with computer avatars). The List:
1. Run for pep club secretary
2. Host a fancy dinner party/soiree
3. Sew a dress for Homecoming
4. Find a steady
5. Do something dangerous
But simple proves to be crazy-complicated, and the details of the past begin to change Mallory’s present. Add in a too-busy grandmother, a sassy sister, and the cute pep-club president–who just happens to be her ex’s cousin–and soon Mallory begins to wonder if going vintage is going too far.

I love Lindsey Leavitt. Going Vintage is the second book I’ve read from her (the other being Sean Griswold’s Head) and it was magnificent. The characters were well written, the story was interesting, and I couldn’t stop reading.

Mallory was awesome. I loved her personality and attitude. Mallory was spunky and different, and I really liked that. It was refreshing having a YA character that was so unique. My favorite thing about her was how independent she was. Mallory isn’t afraid to take a stand for what she believes in, which is one of the things that makes Going Vintage stand out.

Leavitt takes Going Vintage above and beyond with all the other characters in it. Instead of parents and siblings taking a back seat to the story like they do in a lot of books, Mallory’s family was present in Going Vintage. They were almost as well rounded as she was- and it was awesome.

I loved Going Vintage. It was honest, witty, and sweet. Lindsey Leavitt is a fantastic writer. I couldn’t stop reading Going Vintage. I can’t wait to see what Leavitt has coming out next!
