Inside little blue envelope 1
are $1000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket.

In envelope 2 are directions to a
specific London flat.

The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist.

Because of envelope 4, Ginny
and her artist, a playwright/thief/bloke-about-
town called Keith, go to Scotland together,
with somewhat disastrous–though utterly
romantic–resulys. Ginny isn’t sure she’ll see
Keith again, and definitely doesn’t know what
to think about him.

Could the answer be in the envelopes?

Ginny doesn’t know it, but adventures in
Rome and Paris are in envelopes 6 and 8.
The rules are that she has to open one at a
time, in order, so perhaps it isn’t surprising
that she discovers things about her life and
love one by one. Everything about Ginny will
change this summer, and it’s all because of
the 13 little blue envelopes.

This book was a little far-fetched to me because Ginny got to go half way around the world because of 13 little blue envelopes that a dead aunt sent her. I thought the idea was pretty cool like a scavenger hunt throughtout a nation looking for meanings not treasure.

There isn’t much said about Ginny’s character except she’s kinda shy and doesn’t think she’s as interesting as her Aunt Peg or Keith. I kinda can relate to Ginny; she’s wondering why she gets thoes envelopes. The end kind of surprised because I thought
this book would be straight forward, but there is a climax-y point interwined.

If you need something to read, I guess you could pick up this one. However, I think Maureen Johnson has better written novels as I really loved her short story in “Let It Snow”.
