Review: The Last Little Blue Envelope – Maureen Johnson (ARC)

Ginny Blackstone thought that the biggest adventure of her life was behind her. She spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt laid out in a series of letters before she died. When someone stole Ginny’s backpack-and the last little blue envelope inside—she resigned herself to never knowing how it was supposed to end.

Months later, a mysterious boy contacts Ginny from London, saying he’s found her bag. Finally, Ginny can finish what she started. But instead of ending her journey, the last letter starts a new adventure, and Ginny finds she must hold onto her wits-and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.

I read 13 Little Blue Envelopes back when it came out and LOVED it.  I was excited when I saw Maureen Johnson was coming out with a sequel.  I sat down and read it in a few hours…aka I devoured it, I was that excited about it.

Ginny annoyed me at times.  I wanted to slap some sense into her, to be honest.  Keith, who I loved in the original wasn’t much better.  It was one of those situations that occur in books or movies where if the people would just communicate the truth, things would run a lot smoother.

New characters were introduced. Oliver, the boy who has Ginny’s bag is amazing.  I love this character.  He’s so random he made me giggle.  One moment he’s doing magic tricks, the next he’s fighting with Keith.  I also found Ellis enjoyable, she was genuinely a nice person.

All in all it was a great sequel.  I’m happy she wrote it, so we could finally find out what was in that last note. The sequel hits shelves in late April, so there’s plenty of time to pick up the first book in this enjoyable series.

    Thanks for returning the “hop”!
    Oh, stop holding back, just for this book! It’s amazing! My review should be up in a few minutes, and maybe you’ll see why I love it so much! But if you only one more book – ever – buy Before I Die! You won’t be disappointed!
