13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson is about a girl named Ginny who leaves to London after receiving 13 little blue envelopes from her deceased aunt Peg.   Every envelope Ginny opens after that takes her to new places and new people.  In her journey Ginny learns so much about her aunt and starts finding herself. 


                If you are ready to take an adventure 13 Little Blue Envelopes is the right book.  I really enjoyed reading this book and couldnt wait to read what the next envelope said and what the next task was.

I have not finished this book yet but so far it is good! Except for the part that is offensive! It said: Dear Ginger, well you know what I am a red-head and I felt terrible when I read that because people where just making fun of me for having red hair at school that day and I go to read this book to get it off my mind and on the first page the first two words say:DEAR GINGER!) I AM SO SUING! ;) JK LOL 
BUT I REALLY SHOULD SUE FOR THAT!

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.

Ginny receives a message from her eccentric aunt, six months after she died. The message gives her thirteen little blue envelopes and instructs her to travel to Europe and perform a certain task; when she has completed that task, she can open the next envelope. Ginny ventures out into the world and for the first time breaks out of her shell, finds love, and learns all sorts of things she never knew about her aunt's life.




Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes was sweet and fun. It was an adventure, but not overly dramatic at all. The tone was perfect: light and funny. I love Ginny's character - she has many qualities of a normal teenager, but she's independent, self-reliant, and she doesn't always go with the flow. She's her own person, and she's exactly who she wants to be. I highly recommend this book. It was a pleasure to read.

I thought that this book was absolutely excellent. Ginny was SUCH a realistic character to me, and I adored her world travels. Aunt Peg was great, even though we never actually "saw" her. I LOVED the idea of her sending letters from "beyond the grave". If I could give it more stars, I would!

when i first opened this book, it wasn't what i thought it was. i was hoping for another teen story about drama or friends or boys or something. but this book showed me their are other great stories to be read. the main character gets sent around the world by her "dead" aunt to complete tasks, but more importantly, to see the world. many problems come and go, but the girl sticks to the mission to see what her aunt really was trying to tell her. this book made it onto my greatest teen reads list. i didn't think i would like it when i read the first couple of pages, but it touched my heart and it was a change from the usual books i read.

This book is so awesome. It's filled with adventure and comedy. There's even a little bit of romance. It's one of those books that's got everything but the kitchen sink. I just love the plot and the story progresses beautifully. The ending was fabulous.

This book is not what you would expect by looking at the cover. You might dismiss it as "just another teen romance", but it's not. It's the journey of a girl to unravel the mystery that is her late aunt. Along the way she may meet her love interest, but that relationship does not overwhelm the story
This book is more for girls 13+.

I love love love Maureen Johnson. I have only read The Bermudez Triangle before (also reviewed here on this blog) but her blog (link to the right) is hilarious and I'm slowly reading her novels. Slowly because I have so much other crap to read for school and then the ARCs I happen to snag. Anyway, 13 Little Blue Envelopes was a really great novel from Maureen.

The idea of traveling throughout Europe on your own is something everyone wishes they were brave enough to do. And we all envy the ones who are brave enough. The novel shows that it is possible for anyone to do things that scare them or things they don't believe they could do. We can be brave while still being ourselves. It is a great message and a great book.

I highly recommend it and Maureen's other novels.
