13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Maureen Johnsons book, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, is a really fascinating
book. It starts with Aunt Peg’s life and how she was always running away from what she loved because she thought an artist shouldn't feel comfortable but that an artist should always be and feel challenged. That’s why she moved to places she didn't know and started all over again whenever she began to like something about her life too much. When her aunt died, Ginny received a package which contained 13 letters from her. Each of the letters gives her a task she must complete before opening the next letter. Ginny ends up traveling all around Europe where she falls in love with a British guy. 

I thought this book was really interesting because while I was reading it, I had no idea what was going to happen next or what was going to be Ginny’s next assignment. In one chapter she was falling for the British guy, Keith, and in the next one, she was in Rome asking out an Italian guy! This book is full of surprises and that’s why I liked it. I think anyone who likes adventure and traveling will enjoy reading about Ginny and crazy Aunt Peg in 13 Little Blue Envelopes.
