Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt was a unique contemporary book.
Summary from Goodreads:
When 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.
This book was a very interesting book that kept me reading. It was about a girl named Mallory. She was a teenager, who decided to try to not use the internet. It was an interesting experiment, but it didn't go too well.
I really liked Mallory's character. She was sweet, cool, and didn't always follow the trend. I thought that it was nice that she was trying to be different, but it was strange. I mean, who would go without internet just to get revenge on a boyfriend? If that wasn't bad enough, she also had to decide to dress vintage as well.
The plot of this book was pretty generic. It was good, but nothing out of the ordinary.
I liked the romance, but I definitely didn't like Jeremy. He was a player and a cheater. I did like the online aspect in the romance, because it made it more interesting.
Overall, this is a decent book.
