13 Little Blue Envelopes: 03/28/12
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson follows Ginny as she goes on a European adventure outlined for her by her eccentric aunt. The rules also include: no ATM card, no electronic devices and no reading the letters out of order.
The journey takes Ginny first to New York, then to London and finally around Europe. Each piece of the adventure is tucked away in one of the thirteen envelopes.
The set up for the book requires some suspension of disbelief. But once the book gets going it's a fun but heartwarming and sometimes heartbreaking journey for Ginny. She grows through struggles and discoveries.
The book was such a delightful read, that I have The Last Little Blue Envelope on hand and hope to read it soon.

I loved this one too. I still have to get the last one though. I hope it's as good.

I have a small pile of library books to get through, then I'll go back to reading my own books, for a while. That will include The Last Little Blue Envelope.

Thanks for dropping by. I forced myself to finish Timeline but it was a hard read. I just kept wishing to get over with it.

You did better than I did with that book!
