Going Vintage product reviews

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.

I really liked this book it is different than the normal style of book I would normally read I tend to head for mysteries or horror style novels but this more romantic style of book was a really nice change. The storyline was sweet with the growing romance and the young sixteen year old finding out who she was through the course of the story. I liked how Mallory grew as a person and found out a lot about her self through making a list and trying to live a simpler life after her break up with her boyfriend.

Some of the online things were a bit extreme like her boyfriend cheating on her with a virtual person on an online virtual game but I guess these things could happen these days. It was nice to see what things teenagers could do if not spending all their time texting or on facebook. Although Mallory finds that being a teenager in the 1960's was no easier than it is in modern times. I couldn't imagine going without the phone or internet, and although she only gives it up for a couple of weeks you know how hard it would be for a teenager today.

The book didn't end how I would of liked it to end, I guess I am a bit of a romantic and thought the romance would of come to this great ending at the home coming dance but it was more focused on Mallory finding out who she was and needing time to figure out what she wanted.

My daughter was drawn to the book although she asked me what vintage was which sparked conversation on vintage with her and my mother in law. My mother in law was talking to her about all the vintage crockery she has been buying and how they are going to have a high tea so that has got my girl excited about "going vintage" herself.
