Synopsis: "Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 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 a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again?
Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it's all because of the 13 little blue envelopes."
13 Little Blue Envelopes is the third Maureen Johnson book that I have read and it was by far my favorite; the other two being Girl at Sea and The Key to the Golden Firebird.
I think what made 13 Little Blue Envelopes so good were all the messages from her aunt and the crazy things that Ginny had to do in order to read the next one; and how she followed the rules even when things started going down hill.
I also loved hearing about all the places that Ginny went as she followed her aunt’s path from the time she disappeared (like, Scotland, England, Rome, Paris, Amsterdam, Denmark, and Greece) to before the letters first arrived.
My favorite element of the book would have to be reading the letters from her Aunt.
Favorite part of the book would have to be near the beginning when she first got to England and how she met Keith.
The funniest part of the book would have to be when she ended up staying with that crazy family she spent time with in Amsterdam; they were frankly kind of creepy. I don't think I would have stuck around with them.
The only thing I didn’t like about 13 Little Blue Envelopes was that the end of the book was a bit predictable.
13 Little Blue Envelopes was a light, yet highly enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more books by Maureen Johnson. Does anyone know if there is actually a sequel to this book called The Last Little Blue Envelope?
13 Little Blue Envelopes earns 4 1/2 pineapples.
