Summary: When Ginny receives thirteen little blue envelopes and instructions to buy a plane ticket to London, she knows something exciting is going to happen. What Ginny doesn't know is that she will have the adventure of her life and it will change her in more ways than one. Life and love are waiting for her across the Atlantic, and the thirteen little blue envelopes are the key to finding them in this funny, romantic, heartbreaking novel.
Review: This book was so awesome! It was cute and relate-able and just full of good feelings!
Ginny was someone that I think every girl can relate to in one way or another. She's shy and self-conscious, but she's trying to break out of her shell and have an adventure. Keith was also a fun character. I was happy that he wasn't in the book the entire time because then I got to see Ginny's adventure instead of being sidetracked by romance.
I am the biggest fan of road trip books and this was kind of like a road trip across Europe, except they don't go the whole way by car, but you get the point! I loved that their were different characters at each stop in Europe and I got to know them and see who they were without learning their entire life story.
13 Little Blue Envelopes was a fun, feel-good book. It had fun characters, humor to ease some of the tension, and a believable romance that didn't dominate the plot. Overall, a very good read.
