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.

    " Sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I really liked this one, though it didn't have the same magic as the first one, to me. I think part of it was that in the first one, you feel like Ginny is totally out of her element, and you're there with her. In the second one, she's back where you already know her, so you lose that fish-out-of-water aspect of it. It's still lovely and charming, but it's more predictable than the first one, too. (view spoiler)[ You just know the whole way through that she's going to end up falling for Oliver. And it's no big surprise that she decides to go to college in England, as well. (hide spoiler)] And she's so out of touch with her family that it starts to feel like it really is a mash-up. We're supposed to believe Ginny as a high-school senior, but it seems she's already living a basically independent life. Didn't seem realistic. And Ginny is pretty innocent, which is fine, but all the pieces of her situation don't always go together. She seems more like a 9th-or 10th-grader whose age was bumped up to make the travel more realistic. But she doesn't really feel like a high-school senior to me... And, and I know this is nit-picky, but what's up with the photoshopped envelope on the cover? I don't look at covers much (since I choose books based on recommendations and recognition of author name), but once my husband pointed out that the photo is clearly NOT of a girl really holding the envelope, it was so obvious. No drop shadow or anything?! C'mon! This book deserves a more polished cover. All that said, though, this was an enjoyable read. I couldn't wait to see what Ginny was up to now, and I loved the humor and the awkward situations throughout! "
