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 Peg 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—one filled with old friends, new loves, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Ginny finds she must hold on to her wits . . . and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.

Sure, this book and its predecessor, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, are totally unlikely. Whose parents just let them up and go to Europe? Alone? On a treasure hunt? I mean, really. The way she’s able to go with the flow is pretty unbelievable.
But I sort of don’t care!!! I love a wild adventure.
This is a quick, fun read, and this book ties things up nicely for Ginny. Maureen Johnson is a big star on Twitter, and with great reason: Her writing, be it in a novel or in a 140-character tweet, is sharp, lighthearted and shows that she’s clearly twisted in the best way possible.
Follow her @maureenjohnson. STAT! Many thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins for my review copy of this book.
