1. Run for pep club secretary

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 was super excited to be able to read and review this new book by Lindsey Leavitt coming out later this month. March 26th to be exact. :)
Everything about this book was fun ~ from the cover to the end. Mallory is quite a character. When she finds a list of goals her grandmother made when she was Mallory's age, she decides that she will reenact the list. After being burned by her boyfriend, Mallory needs to change things up a bit and decides to "Go Vintage". Mallory seems to think that the generation her grandmother grew up in had things easier because technology wasn't as advanced but what she finally realizes in the end is that no matter when or where you have lived, drama and heartache can be found. Mallory also finds out many things about herself and her family along the way.
I was very entertained by Mallory's sense of humor. Sarcasm and wit always get me.
This is a cute chick lit contemporary YA book that teenagers will be able to relate to. It has high school drama, crazy family moments, secrets, social media explosions, boy/girl relationships and even a trip to Disneyland! :) That's all the main ingredients for a good book right there.
Content: Some make out scenes and some sexual innuendo.
You can pre-order Going Vintage on Amazon.
My thanks to both NetGalley and Bloomsbury for providing a copy of this book for review.
