Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I am so so so excited about this book, 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. (from Author's Website)
Oh so many things about this have me excited. The concept. The cover art. The name Oliver. Really liking Leavitt's previous YA contemporary Sean Griswold's Head (my thoughts). This is one that I will be pre-ordering for sure.
It's release date is March 26, 2013.
