"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."--From publisher.

I quite liked this book. Mallory is a wonderful main character. With an interesting approach to solving her problems. Although i prefer her sister.

I honestly didn't like the main character, Mallory, that much. The book itself was good, I enjoyed the story and all of the other characters. The main character just really irked me, she acted like a brat. That's why I would say it was a 4/5 star book, the concept was unique and all of the other characters were awesome, just didn't like Mallory.

A good concept but it just isn't pulled off particularly well - characters are not fleshed out nearly enough

When Mallory learns that her boyfriend, Jeremy, cheated on her with a cyber wife, she decides to completely remove technology from her life and instead wants to live her life according to her Grandmother's list of goals from when she was growing up, back in 1962, a 'simpler time.' But she soon realizes going simple isn't so simple, and that no matter what generation you were born in, we all share them same human struggles and heartache.

"Now I'm the one confused. Maybe Oliver was being nice the other day at lunch, and really DID want to help me in that meeting. But if Oliver isn't a tool, then that makes Jeremy a double tool. How did Jeremy sit through an entire lunchroom conversation with his cousin and not mention our breakup?"
