Review- 13 Little Blue Envelopes

Title: 13 Little Blue Envelopes
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rating: 4/5
Find it here: Amazon, Goodreads

Blurb:

When Ginny receives thirteen little blue envelopes and instructions to buy a plane ticket to London, she knows something exciting is going to happen. When Ginny doesn't know it that she will have the adventure of her life and it will change her in more ways than one. Life and love are waiting for her across the Atlantic, and the thirteen little blue envelopes are the key to finding them in this funny, romantic, heartbreaking novel.

My thoughts:

Who wouldn't want to go on a super exciting treasure hunt around the world with only letters to guide you?! This would be a dream for me and I would go in a heartbeat. Of course I wouldn't want it to be at the expense of my aunt's death but it would still be so cool.

The writing was so fresh and new that I found myself flying through the book, hardly able to put it down! The character, Ginny, was so shy but by the end she had found a new sense of self-confidence after the journey she had been on.

Of course I wish it had ended differently and that she stayed in London but that's pretty unrealistic. It was still really good and I'm glad I read it!

Sounds like a fun, cute book to read. And with the adventure in another country it sounds perfect for the Summerholliday. ;)

This is one of those cute, quick summer-kind of reads that I have my eye on! Think I shall add this to my TBR list soon-- thanks for the review :)

I like the ARC cover of this book (the one with the girl in the pink/peach tank and the envelop in her hands) better than the final one though, I have to say, I think it's much cuter than the one they chose!
