13 Little Blue Envelopes
Maureen Johnson
Publish year:
Ginny Blackstone is a seventeen year old girl waiting on her Senior year of school to start when she receives thirteen blue envelopes from her troublesome, dead Aunt Peg. The first letter gives her five simple instructions: she can only bring what fits into a backpack, she cannot bring any kind of journal or foreign language aid, she cannot bring extra money of any kind, and she cannot use or bring anything electronic with her and she is only allowed to open the next envelope once she has reached the destination or has completed the task set in the previous letter. The envelopes take her across Europe on a journey that allows her to see what her Aunt Peg was doing in her last few months, and to understanding herself and her Aunt.
