13 Little Blue Envelopes: Maureen Johnson


"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: tells Ginny to find a starving artist.

Because of envelope 4: Ginny and a playwright/theif/bloke-about-town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous - though utterly romantic - results. But will she ever see him again?" --- Back of book

Ginny Blackstone receives a mysterious little blue envelope with a cute drawn on number 1. It tells her to buy and plane ticket to London ASAP, but not before she travels to a run down greasy Chinese restaurant that her strange aunt Peg used to live in. When she goes there she gets a package with 12 more little blue envelopes. Each one leading her on another adventure across Europe. She meets new people, finds love, dreams big, and find herself in a new way that her aunt Peg was always trying to tell her. Everything Ginny new about herself will change because of these 13 little blue envelopes.

13 little blue envelopes is an amazing book, its very funny but can be very serious too. Maureen has done it again! But seriously read this book its amazing and eye opening.
