Seventeen-year-old Ginny Blackstone is off on another fun, romantic, and hilarious European adventure in this irresistible sequel to Johnson’s breakout hit “13 Little Blue Envelopes.

Review

The Last Little Blue Envelope picks up where 13 Little Blue Envelopes finished and it talks about Ginny and her “adventure” traveling cross Europe to accomodate her dead Aunt Peg’s wishes. The Last Little Blue Envelope is the closure that Ginny seeks after what happened in 13 Little Blue Envelopes. Here she revisits the places she went before but with a few editions, one being Oliver – the lad that contacted her and will be a vital element in the story. I opted not to include much details to avoid telling spoilers.

The Last Little blue Envelope was somewhat questionable in the sense that it raised a lot of question marks for me. For one, where are her parents? I mentioned in my previous review about this small detail and somehow in this story, there’s no difference at all. Another thing, Europe is supposed to be magical right? Well both books seemed to lack that magic – I wasn’t feeling like I was visiting the best of Europe. I was hoping to read a descriptive picture of the places she’s traveling to but I got none – just the idea that she went here and there. With that said, I did enjoy this book. It was a fun read and I would definitely say better than the first book.

This is an okay book but not the best book out there. I advice readers to read the first book before reading this one – you’ll seriously regret it if you don’t. It is a quick read so don’t worry about it being boring since it isn’t.
