Product description

Technology, tweets and cheats – was life always this complicated? Mallory’s boyfriend is cheating on her and her online friends have stabbed her in the back. Just as life is imploding, she finds a list written by her grandma when she was Mallory’s age. All she had to worry about was sewing dresses and planning dinner parties. Things were so much simpler in the 1960s! And there’s nothing on the list that Mallory couldn’t do herself. Maybe it’s time for Mallory to go back to an age of tea cosies and sewing patterns, to see if the answers to her modern-day problems could lie in the past! The modern world collides with a teenager’s life fifty years ago in this tale of vintage dress prints, media madness and 21st century pressures – a sweet story with a serious side.
