Ginny Blackstone believes that the biggest problem she's facing right now is coming up with her college admissions essay, which is due very shortly. Gone are the days of last summer when Ginny was traveling around Europe following the clues to tasks her aunt had left her in little blue envelopes in order for her to learn some life lessons from each one of them. Unfortunately, she never had the chance to finish all the tasks because the very last blue envelope, which she had in her backpack, was stolen during the last leg of her European adventure.
Now, she can't believe that she has just received an email from a guy living in London and he states he has her backpack and the last blue envelope that he found when he bought the backpack off of a kid on the street. Ginny can't wait to get in touch with him so she can finally finish this adventure her aunt had wanted her to enjoy. But when she finally receives a reply back, he tells her that if she wants it she'll have to come and get it from him. He also states that he has to go along with her on this adventure as payment for returning the envelope to her.
Without a second thought, Ginny knows that heading to London is her only option. She'll stop at nothing to accomplish all her tasks that her deceased aunt wanted her to finish even though she now has this guy hitching along on the ride throughout Europe with her.
Is Ginny finally able to accomplish her adventure once and for all even though this guy is tagging along with her?
I liked this Young Adult story and found the storyline quite entertaining. I never read the first book in this series, but rest assured you won't feel lost by not having read it. I feel this is a fun adventure that any young adult would enjoy going on with Ginny and the friends she makes along the way. I honestly couldn't wait to see if she would be able to finally finish all the tasks her aunt wanted her to accomplish. If you're looking for a fun, enjoyable read that takes you along on an exciting ride of your life, than look no further. Well done, Ms. Johnson!
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.
