Only now Aunt Peg is gone and all Ginny has left is a letter of instructions from her. Well, 13 letters that she’s only permitted to open as she finishes the tasks outlined in each.
At 17 Aunt Peg ditched her college scholarship and plans for the great unknown and she promised Ginny she’d help her do the same. Could this letter be the fulfillment of that promise?
Follow Ginny as she takes on her aunt’s quest, and hopefully, finds that life direction she’s been searching for.
What I liked: 13 Little Blue Envelopes is a terrific book! Not just for YA but for females of all ages. There is something about Ginny’s journey of maturity and confidence that is essential for each of us, though most don’t need this extreme of a journey! Overall, it’s a light & fun book that most will enjoy, but it does have some tearjerker moments and some deep points.
What I didn’t like: While I realize 13 Little Blue Envelopes is set in Europe I didn’t like that Ginny was drinking. Mostly because, being on her own in a foreign country with people she didn’t know is dangerous! The other thing I didn’t like is a part where Ginny’s virginity is discussed. It wasn’t terrible, just unnecessary.
If I think about it the horrors of the possibilities of Ginny’s journey completely staggers me, but when I pull myself out of mom-mode it’s a great book.
