Going Vintage

A modern Southern California teen (a junior in high school) goes retro (including no cell phone) in the wake of discovering that her boyfriend (her first steady) has been carrying on a (low-key, tame, but nevertheless emotionally invested) virtual affair.  She’s kind of OCD – she’s an inveterate list-maker – but is endearing.  Her relationships with her sister (younger), parents, and grandmother are fully functional and fairly normal.  I appreciated that at the end she finds her center instead of a substitute boy-crutch.  A book for older tweens and younger teens who like lighthearted stories of personal growth.
