 Summary
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.

My Thoughts
I knew I would enjoy this books from the get go. Loved the cover and I’m a sucker for all things 60’s.  Breaking up after discovering her boyfriend cheated on her, Mallory decides to go tech free. She does this in a way to just having something to do to get her mind off her ex. When she finds an old list of things to do from her grandmas high school days she thinks she’s found the perfect way to make her life right. Little goes she realize that she is about to unlock a secret bigger than she would ever imagine. Not only does she help her grandma come to terms with past and choices but Mallory also finds herself.

This is a cute quick and wonderful read that will keep you entertained without a doubt. I loved the way Lindsey Leavitt wrote the various characters. While Mallory is the main character I must say her sister is my favorite. She really steals the scene. She’s funny and quick witted, makes you feel like you’ve known them people forever. I highly recommend this book.
