I thought this book was good. It led you with Virginia Blackstone, a shy girl who is led to come out of her shell by her erratic Aunt Peg. Ginny's aunt recently died of a brain tumor after unexpectedly leaving to Europe where she never comes back. One day she gets a letter in the mail, explaining the need for her to get to New York then hop on a plane to London and other crazy adventures that follow. She makes friends and finds love traveling through Europe. I thought this book had good writing and gave a good view into how Ginny was feeling and what was going on. I was slightly unimpressed by the book's ending which just kind of left you hanging. I can understand it's reasoning but I was expecting more. It left me slightly confused but otherwise I felt it was a wonderful and enticing book. It is a fun and easy read. Once you start reading it you really get into it.

Ginny is a seventeen year old girl who goes all around the world on a misson; a mission given to her by her beloved aunt, who had died. Ginny is given thirteen blue envelopes, each a letter telling her what to do and places to visit. I enjoyed this book because each letter and place is a mystery. I recommend this book for 14 and up.

13 Little Blue Envelopes is about a girl named Ginny, who after her Grandmother's death is sent on a wild scavenger hunt throughout Europe with nothing but thirteen blue envelopes and her backpack. She must follow four simple rules:

Rule #1 You may only bring what fits in your backpack. Don't try to fake it with a purse or a carry on.

Rule #2 You may not bring guidebooks, phrasebooks, or any kind of foreign language aid. And no journals

Rule#3 You cannot bring extra money or credit/debit cards, travelers checks etc. I'll take care of all of that.

Rule#4 No electronic crutches. This means no laptop, no cell phone, no music, and no camera. You can't call home or communtcate with anyone in the US by internet or telephone. Postcards and letters are acceptable and encouraged.

During this trip she learns alot about herself and her grandmother than she ever thought that she would. It was a great book I loved the concept of a scavenger hunt and I felt like I was a part of her journey accross Europe. It was an excelent Summer Read!

Ginny has just received a package from her runaway aunt. It contains 13
blue envelopes. On each envelope, there is a set of instructions she
must follow. Ginny is amazed at this because a) The instructions
include going to Europe with nothing more than a backpack and b) her
aunt is dead. Nevertheless, Ginny goes to London, where her aunt has
written that she should go. Only this is just the beginning. Ginny
meets an Englishman, Keith, and falls in love with him. She follows the
instructions and goes to Scotland to the house of a very interesting
artist, she travels to Denmark, France, Italy, and Greece among others.
What Ginny doesn't know, is that, in between all this crazyness, she
discovers the true state of her late aunt while she was dying and
discovers more about herself than she ever knew.



This is the perfect romantic/travel novel. It is the third time I've
read it and I still love it as the first time. It is this novel that
flourished in me a desire to travel and get to know other places in
this world. It also made me want to date a Hot English Dude even more.



What seems like a lonely trip, becomes the adventure of a lifetime,
including the auction of her aunt's painting which results in lots of
money that she shares with her aunt's friend, Richard.



Richard, a sweet character, was also her aunt's husband, something
Ginny didn't know because her aunt, after fleeing from New York, didn't
keep that much in contact. Ginny learns that her aunt was not always
very smart but that she had passions, something that Ginny struggles to
thrive for. Unexpectedly, her aunt did love too. She loved Richard,
something that even he didn't know.



This novel is still one of my favorites and I welcome all of you to read it and share your thoughts on it.



In once sentence:

Europe has never seemed like such an adventure until you've read this book!

Ginny's aunt has died. But she's left something behind. 13 Little Blue Envelopes-each sets a task and the next should not be opened until the task is complete. The story is hilarious and entertaining. You will wish that her adventures would never end. While the ending isn't entirely satisfying it is the right ending for the book.

Maureen Johnson's writes the books excellently and Ginny is a believable character.

This was a good book. She gets an envelope and it tells her where to go to get her next clue. I thought this book would be dull, but it kept me reading till it was finished. I can't believe someone would actually make sure they completed a task before they continued on with their journey. I would be so scared! READ IT!!!

The first time i read this book, I didn't really like it. But it's one of those books that get better every time you read it.

13 Little Blue Envelopes was about a girl named Ginny traveling through Europe with only letters from her dead aunt as a guide. The letters cause her to go on a crazy trip that she's gauranteed to never forget, but it also helps her to do things that she would never have dreamed of being bold enough to do. In England she finds love, in France a little cafe with decorations of little dogs, and so much more.

This was a book that gave me a strong urge to go to Europe. It was really good, and kept me interested.

Ginny Blackstone goes on adventure one summer lead by her dead "runaway aunt". Ginny was able to be herself around her aunt, silly, and adventerous rather than shy. But when her aunt just picks up and leaves Ginny feels abandoned. Then when her aunt dies, Ginny doesn't know what to do. It's a good thing that Ginny's aunt set up an adventure just for her. Ginny ends up traveling all over Europe, following Aunt Peg's rules and opening only one envelope at a time to find out her next location or task.

This book was truly amazing. You never knew exactly what would happen next, which i like in a book. Ginny's character was very developed but the rest including Keith's weren't. I would have loved to get inside Keith's head. 13 Little Blue Envelopes never left me bored thougg and that's what really counts.

I say to go out and buy this book! There's no rush, but it should definately be put in your to-be-read pile!
