SR--The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson

Well, I should have realized that by the title this was not a complete stand alone book.  In other words, there was a book before this one.  Yikes!  However, I still got the gist of the novel.  I enjoyed it quite a lot, so let me tell you a bit about it.  Ginny receives 13 blue envelopes in the mail from her aunt that died from cancer.  These envelopes lead her on an adventure in Europe that also affords her the opportunity to meet some rather interesting characters.  She even meets and has a relationship with a certain young man.  She has one more envelope left, and she decides to take a swim in Greece.  Ginny and her friend leave their belongings with some Greek boys--hmmm...sounds like trouble.  Well, you guessed it her bag was taken and along with it all of the envelopes.  She does not get to find out what her aunt has left in store for her.  Now, that all happens in the first book.

Finally, up to the second book--the one I actually read...the last little blue envelope.  Ginny receives an email telling her that someone accidentally got possession of her letters.  He offers to meet her to give them to her. Ginny is excited and makes plans to go to Europe for Christmas and spend it with her aunt's husband.  She also hopes to meet up with her love interest.  She can hardly wait to see what is in store for her.  However, when she meets the boy who has the letters, she gets more than she bargains for and she is in for another adventure.  Interesting read about life not always being what you expect.

I do recommend this one as a GOOD read.

Here is a quick video for both books.
