Review: The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson

The Last Little Blue Envelope (Little Blue Envelope, #2)The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary: 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.

Characters: Ginny initially seemed determined to get together with Keith after their little flame was ignited in 13 Little Blue Envelopes. Except, then Oliver joins, and Keith turns into a total jealous boyfriend even though him and Ginny were never together. I'm sorry, but I hated Keith this time! He is just so immature in this book. Oliver seems very elusive up until the very end, but never malicious to Keith. If I were him, I would have snapped at Keith, which just shows his sangfroid.

Plot: They're off on another fun road trip. I'm so jealous of these characters because I love traveling! Anyway, the book's not too plot driven, but finding out the mystery of Oliver is quite intriguing.

Would I recommend this to a friend? Of course! I love Maureen. Her writing is just so fun and cute!
