"Waiting On" Wednesday #5: Going Vintage


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that features upcoming releases that we can't wait to get our hands on.

My pick this week is...

Title: Going Vintage
Author: Lindsey Leavitt
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Expected Publication: March 16, 2013

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.

I enjoyed Sean Griswold's Head so I definitely want to read more from Lindsey Leavitt. Can't wait for this!

What are you waiting on? :-)

  1. This one sounds really cute - and I like the sounds of "family moments and laugh-out-loud humour".

    Also, I noticed you're currently reading Pushing the Limits. I loved that one, I hope you do too. I can't wait for Dare You To (the sequel to come out).

    Here's mine
