13 Little Blue Envelopes

I really enjoyed the book 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson. I thought that it was a book that had everything. Adventure, romance, suspense, mystery, everything. I would read this book again and again. It also really made me want to go to Europe. I thought that the character development was amazing. Ginny, the main character, really found herself in this book. I also enjoyed how when she would open one of the envelopes to read the letter, the page would turn in to what it might look like if you glued a real page in to the book.

Ginny's Aunt Peg disappeared for two years, with almost no communication at all. No one really knew what happened to her until news comes that Aunt Peg had died of a brain tumor. Ginny doesn't know what to think. Aunt Peg was one of the most lively people that Ginny had ever know. And then the letters came. 13 to be exact. From Aunt Peg. Telling her that she has to travel around Europe and she cant open the next envelope until she has completed the task in the current envelope. All Ginny knows is that she must go. The envelopes lead her through out Europe, giving her new experiences with art and the culture, meeting a striving young artist named Keith, and a man named Richard who is mysteriously connected to her aunt. Ginny won't only learn about the beauty of the world, but about the girl she really is.

I very much recommend this book, and the sequel: The Last Little Blue Envelope. I hope that you will find as much joy in it as i did!
