Review: The Last Little Blue Envelope


Ginny Blackstone thought that the biggest adventure of her life was behind her. She spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt Peg laid out in a series of letters before she died. When someone stole Ginny's backpack—and the last little blue envelope inside—she resigned herself to never knowing how it was supposed to end.

Months later, a mysterious boy contacts Ginny from London, saying he's found her bag. Finally, Ginny can finish what she started. But instead of ending her journey, the last letter starts a new adventure—one filled with old friends, new loves, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Ginny finds she must hold on to her wits . . . and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.


The Last Little Blue Envelope is the sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes and just like the first one, I loved this one. It was a wonderful read. I loved seeing some of the old characters along with meeting new ones too. They were all written so well and fully created.

Once again, I was blown away by the descriptions of all the places that Ginny goes. It really does feel like you are right there visiting these places with them. They're beautiful and Maureen completely pulls you into all the different places with her descriptions.

The story was fast paced and full of adventure, the characters come alive off the page, and I loved how even though Ginny was following a letter like she did with letters 1-12 in the first book, it was--because of Oliver--done in a different way.This was a book that I read in one sitting because I just didn't want to put it down.

So, go check it out! It comes out today, April 26, 2011~
