Reader reviewed by Manda

13 Little Blue Envelopes (13LBE) is the story of Ginny Blackstone's summer abroad.  However, 13LBE isn't the typical summer abroad story.  Ginny doesn't choose to go on this trip, she is sent on it by her crazy aunt who has left her directions to follow in 13 letters, hence the title. This is the only book I've read by Maureen Johnson and she is an amazing author.  The whole time I read this book I felt what Ginny was feeling.  I laughed with her, I cried with her, I even pinned for the boy she falls for.  This is definitely a book I recommend to anyone who loves YA novels. This book will make you want to travel where Ginny travels and if you are from the states like me you'll be dying to travel abroad.  I never got the feeling while reading 13LBE that I didn't understand a location Ginny traveled to and I definitely never felt out of the loop.  I can't wait till the sequel comes out.  I'm in love with the life of Ginny Blackstone and I know you'll feel the same way too.
