New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson’s funny, heartbreaking, and utterly romantic tale gets a great new cover!

Ginny Blackstone never thought she’d spend her summer vacation backpacking across Europe. But that was before she received the first little blue envelope from Aunt Peg.

This letter was different from Peg’s usual letters for two reasons:

1. Peg had been dead for three months.

2. The letter included $1000 cash for a passport and a plane ticket.

Armed with instructions for how to retrieve twelve other letters Peg wrote—twelve letters that tell Ginny where she needs to go and what she needs to do when she gets there—Ginny quickly finds herself swept away in her first real adventure. Traveling from London to Edinburgh to Amsterdam and beyond, Ginny begins to uncover stories from her aunt’s past and discover who Peg really was. But the most surprising thing Ginny learns isn’t about Peg . . . it’s about herself.

Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it’s all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.

Look for the sequel, The Last Little Blue Envelope!

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Fast-Paced 13 Little Blue Envelopes is a fun story of a teenaged girl coming to terms with her eccentric aunt's death, and the scavenger hunt her aunt has left for her. I really liked this quick read - there's a lot of fun wish-fulfillment that is enjoyable to read - scavenger hunts, free trips across Europe, kind British boys, surprise relatives - and enough angst and conflict about what we really know about our relatives to drive the plot forward. Recommended!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super confusing.... but still an okay book I'll admit, I was pretty bored when I read this book. It was really pointless and a torture to read. Sure there were some good parts but I felt like I really struggled to read and get through it the first time around. The second time I read it, I liked it, but the first time was the WORST! The romance between Ginny and Scott is actually really confusing also. There are times when I'm just completely revolted by them for no apparent reason. Then, there are other times when it's actually kind of cute. Overall, I liked it but nothing more than that. If you're not usually in to reading, then don't read this book, but if you're relatively bored or want a challenge, then you should definitely read this book. It tests your attention level and is just another random way to chew up your time. So ultimately, its your choice, this is the first book where I'm actually neutral about my opinion of it so I'm not much of a help in the "yes" or "no" department. Sorry! :P But if you like it, read the sequel.
