Publisher Comments:

Sixteen-year-old Mallory loves her boyfriend, Jeremy. Or at least likes him more than she's ever liked any boy. She's sure he feels the same way until she happens upon his online Authentic Life game and discovers he's cheating on her--with his cyber "wife". Mallory leaves Jeremy's house in a huff to pack up her Grandma Vivian's basement, where she discovers a list of goals her grandma wrote in 1962. At age sixteen. 1. Run for Pep Squad secretary2. Host a dinner party/fancy soiree3. Sew a dress for homecoming4. Find a steady5. Do something dangerous.The list seems so simple, so sweet, that Mallory decides to go vintage--foregoing all twenty-first century technology and accomplishing the tasks on grandma's list. Except finding a steady is obviously out, no matter how good Oliver (Jeremy's cousin) smells. So she makes a deal with her sister Ginnie--they'll conquer the list together. Somehow.

Review:

"A devoted list maker, 16-year-old Mallory is determined to transform her life when she finds out her boyfriend, Jeremy, has a cybergirlfriend who goes by the name 'BubbleYum.' As Mallory's relationship and reputation fall apart publicly on 'Friendspace,' she declares she's 'Done with computers and phones... and fake fakeness. I'm talking complete isolation.' She swears off technology to focus on a list her grandmother made in 1962 when she was 16; Mallory vows to run for pep squad secretary, host a fancy dinner, sew a homecoming dress, find a 'steady,' and do something dangerous. Mallory's high-spirited and hilarious younger sister, Ginnie, supports her, as does her ex's cute, offbeat cousin Oliver, and sparks fly as they build a pep club homecoming float. In the meantime, Mallory's grandmother, who has just moved into a senior residence, seems distracted and uninterested in revisiting the past — and she may have her reasons. With perceptiveness and several fun plot twists, Leavitt's (Sean Griswold's Head) nuanced book is filled with quirky characters that readers will root for and believe in. Ages 12 — up.

Synopsis:

Live like it's 1962 in this fun, contemporary YA read from the never-out-of-date Lindsey Leavitt.

Synopsis:

When Mallory discovers that her boyfriend, Jeremy, is cheating on her with an online girlfriend, she swears off boys. She also swears off modern technology. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in 1962, Mallory decides to "go vintage" and return to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn't cheat on you online). She sets out to complete grandma's list: run for pep club secretary, host a dinner party, sew a homecoming dress, find a steady, do something dangerous. But the list is trickier than it looks. And obviously finding a steady is out . . . no matter how good Oliver (Jeremy's cousin) smells. But with the help of her sister, she'll get it done. Somehow. Lindsey Leavitt perfectly pairs heartfelt family moments, laugh-out-loud humor, and a little bit of romance in this delightful contemporary novel.
