Mallory has just been cheated on by an online girlfriend. Yes an online girlfriend. She comes to terms with her situation by de-modernizing her life, which means no computer, cell phone, or even an alarm clock. She gets inspired when she finds her grandmother's list from 1962 of new school year resolutions. With the help of her friends, sister, and surprisingly cute cousin of her ex, she figures out that in any generation being a teenage is always complicated.
I honestly really liked this book, because it was very refreshing (and comical) to read a story about getting rid of the one thing the teenage generation views as a necessity for life. I loved the humor and awkwardness that came with this book and often thought "What would I do in this situation?"
I think any teenager could relate to this book and the complications we would all have if someone suddenly yanked our iPhones out of our hands. It's one of those books that has a resolution/happy ending and this book makes it work, so therefore you should read it.
