The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson

This review may contain spoilers of previous books in the series.
Summary:(from book jacket) 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.
Review: I read 13 Little Blue Envelopes a few years ago so I was excited when I heard there was going to be a sequel. I thought this book was a good finish to where that story left off. The plot had a good pace and the way things played out was interesting. At first I was a little dissapointed by the way things were happening, ubt as the story went on I started to enjoy it a little more. I really liked the ending. I thought it was the perfect way for this story to end. I liked all the characters in this book. But for some reason i wasn't really able to connect with Ginny. my favorite character in this book was probably Oliver although, Keith is a close second. The two of them together are really funny. overall, I thought this was a lighthearted and fun read, but I strongly recommend reading the first book before picking this one up.
