In 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Ginny, coaxed by her recently deceased Aunt Peg by way of letters, goes on a whirlwind European adventure. From London to Rome to Denmark to Greece, she sees the world while discovering who she is and who her free-spirited aunt really was.
This book came to me at the perfect time. I was in the midst of my European adventure when I picked up this book. I read in one evening in Venice and on the train to Vienna. It was a blast reading about Ginny’s travels while on my own.
But, even if you are in the comfort of your own home, I’m pretty sure you will love this book. It is fun and funny. Ginny is lovable, the people she encounters are unique, and the missions she is sent on are interesting. The only thing I would have liked would be more Keith. She has this little romance going on, but I didn’t feel like he was around enough, so it felt a little forced.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel, The Last Little Blue Envelope. I know this isn’t the best review. Just trust me and the awesomeness that is Maureen Johnson and read it. Ok?
