Waiting on Wednesday: Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt.

 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. (Summary by GoodReads)

In the age of the hipster, I think this sounds delightful. Especially as both Ari and I enjoy hosting tea parties, knitting, and sewing. 

Going Vintage  comes out Mar. 26, 2013.
