Book review: “The Last Little Blue Envelope”
Reviewed by Gabbie Richard
The novel picks up where 13 Little Blue Envelopes left off, Ginny upset with the loss of her last letter. She receives an email from a mysterious Oliver claiming he has found the missing letter. Ginny jumps at the chance to travel back to Europe to finish last summer's adventure but soon realizes that this is a beginning of an adventure all its own.
This novel is a great read, providing clever, sweet, and funny plot points. Ginny has matured from the previous story to a point where she is more confident and a lot stronger. Instead of focusing on her finding out who she is, Johnson has placed an emphasis on how Ginny is torn between what to do with her life. With that said, the crazy, whirlwind adventures of the first novel, are dimmed here. The Last Little Blue Envelope is a journey through Ginny's emotions.
The Last Little Blue Envelope provides a young girl everything she would want to read—the right mix of suspense, romance, and a level of maturity. Johnson has created another masterpiece, capturing the admiration of many. I would recommend this book for girls looking for a cute, quirky story to read. It makes the list of being a great summer novel.
