Trailer Tuesday

I really enjoyed Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt. And that's not really surprising because I am a fan of all of the author's previous books.

Such a fun book! I give 4 out of 5 stars to it. And I think that it's great for 6th grade and up.

From the Publisher: 
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 couldnt cheat on you "online"). She sets out to complete grandmas 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 (Jeremys cousin) smells. But with the help of her sister, shell 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.

I thought this author video was a fun little segment to get you in the mood for reading the book. Enjoy!
