Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

Have you ever wanted to completely disconnect from technology? You know, no Facebook, no email, no Twitter, no phone?Just the thought is a kind of painful for most of us. How are you supposed to talk to your friends, see what is happening in the world, look at the directions or watch videos very adorable puppies, tiny falling asleep (it can not be just me, right?)?

In Going Vintage, Mallory decides to take the plunge in technology after her boyfriend cheats on her… Jeremy online.While using his computer one day she discovers that he has a different online life, and that life includes a cyberwife with whom he long exchange, romantic messages. Naturally, Mallory is livid.

When she help her grandmother moving and sorting through old boxes, it falls on a list of the objectives of high school his grandmother, which include things like “get a constant” and “become secretary pep club “and” sew a dress to return home. “Mallory decides how she had rather live in a time when his biggest problem was pep, instead of online-Related club infidelity. so it swear off technology and promises to complete the grandmother goal list.

But, it turns out, this is a little more complicated than expected Mallory. How is she supposed to search (and type) missions? And if his school does not even have a pep club? And how is she supposed to learn how to sew before returning home?

So Mallory has problems. But, fortunately, she also got a great support system: his grandmother (even if it is a bit odd), his sister Ginnie (which is a real stickler for following the rules “no technology”) and Oliver , Jeremy’s cousin. as Mallory tries to find answers to all her questions (like, what’s up with her grandmother? And what’s up with her parents? And Oliver is just really, really in pep club or is it her?) she ends up learning a lot about herself as well.

Some highlights:

-When Mallory upset over the betrayal of Jeremy, his Ginnie this concoction called Milk Toast done. It involves a lot of butter, toast, milk and poached eggs. The existence of this dish shocked me so much that I still think about it. Is that a thing? One of you ever ate milk toast? Do I need to eat milk toast? Please share any milk toast experiences related in the comments. I am a curious girl.

-I Know, I always talk about how romance is essentially my reason for living, but I also enjoy books that have other things going on. Make no mistake, there is some to swoon Going Vintage, but there is a relatively small part of the plot. Also on Mallory set without a guy around and find that his “thing” is, I really liked the book!

-Okay, So I thought the romance is not a big part of the plot, but I’m still pretty in love with Oliver. What a baby! He’s funny and smart and totally respect Mallory.

– Going Vintage has a lot of sewing machines and clothing details. I loved reading about Mallory vintage prom dress, which I imagined like the Iona dress in Pretty in Pink (although it has been described quite differently).

The -Mallory relationship with her grandmother is really sweet, and Mallory learns much of her. Namely, the 50s / 60s were certainly not perfect, and that people then had problems that were as big as our problems today. I especially liked it, because it really annoys me when people say they should have been born in the 50’s because, like, you like to be stuck in traditional gender roles and deal with segregation? I’ll stick with the technological, medical and social progress in 2013, thank you. Grumpy lady rant over.

-If You enjoyed Going Vintage, be sure to check other books by Lindsey Leavitt, Chief Sean Griswold and the princess Forseries hire.

What you guys? Have you read Going Vintage? Do you wish you could stop technology? Have you eaten MILK TOAST? All pressing issues. Let me know in the comments! And, as always, I love to hear your suggestions for books to be included in Young adult education! In fact, a pretty player recommended Going Vintage for me! Leave me a comment, email me [email protected] or find me on Twitter KerryAnn .
