When Ginny receives thirteen little blue envelopes and instructions to buy a plane ticket to London, she knows something exciting is going to happen. What Ginny doesn't know is that she will have the adventure of her life and it will change her in more ways than one.
This book was so fabulous I don't even know how to begin my review! I can't imagine being given a set of envelopes and sent out to foreign lands like Ginny's aunt did her. I'm not sure I could do it which is why I think I enjoyed this book so much is because I got to galavant along with Ginny and not have to endure the fright factor. With that said I still found myself comparing my younger self to her and coming to the conclusion we were not so different actually. Neither of us had really done much traveling away from home, both sorta shy, and both seeking adventure.

I feel like Ginny really needed to go on this adventure even against her family's wishes because she needed to find herself and come out of her shell. Her aunt realized how Ginny was so much like her and would probably have never taken a step like this without a push and she would have missed out on so many things...maybe even the love of her life!

Keith ohh I loved him and was so happy when he and Ginny were together but totally hated what he done at Mari's even if he did have good intentions! His friends kinda had me rolling my eyes though. They were far to childish.

I have book two waiting and cant wait to see what happens next!


  1. Yay! I'm glad you liked this book. I feel like so many people are just meh about it, but I really adored it. Ginny is basically my BFF :)

  2. I really did Karen! I guess I just saw so much of me in Ginny's character that it was so easy to relate to her.
