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.

My Thoughts:

So I’ve been anxiously waiting for this book to come out since book number one! I wanted to know desperately what was going to be in the last blue envelope. Well just like any of her other novels, Johnson def did not disappoint. It was funny, entertaining and it had a little of everything. From romance, to living with a broken heart, to almost getting arrest, to traveling around the world in what seems like a minute with a complete stranger. I actually loved this novel just as much as the first one and that’s saying something because some authors can’t bring it back in a good second book but it was just so awesome. It def has some Maureen in it. The book is silly and serious when it needs to be and it the ending def left me satisfied. Couldn’t ask for a better follow up! I give this one 4 out of 5 paws.
