This trip will be the stuff of a great college application (and a great story) in The Last Little Blue Envelope (2011) by Maureen Johnson.
Miss Print
We truly enjoy the first book in this series and we have enjoyed this one too ... we are hoping for another one soon.

When Ginny Blackstone received thirteen little blue envelopes last summer she recognized them for what they were: a wild adventure laid out by her Peg--Ginny's wildly interesting aunt who could never do anything the simple, mundane way.

The envelopes led Ginny to England and on an adventure across Europe. Along the way Ginny learned a lot about her aunt and herself. Until her adventure was cut short when the last little blue envelope was stolen. Even without that final piece, without that bit of closure, Ginny knows that summer was the most exciting thing she has ever done. Too bad she can't explain any of that in 1000 words for her college application essay.

Months later, Ginny is still struggling with those college applications. She is still wondering about that last blue envelope.

Then an inscrutable English boy offers Ginny the last little blue envelope. For a price. She doesn't much like Oliver. She definitely doesn't trust him. And she knows he has his own agenda. But she also knows she has to accept his offer. It's what Aunt Peg would do and, now, it's what Ginny needs to do.

This last piece of Ginny's adventure has no rules. It will lead her back to familiar sites and old friends. It will test Ginny's mettle, and maybe even her sanity when it comes to dealing with Oliver. This trip will be the stuff of a great college application (and a great story) in The Last Little Blue Envelope (2011) by Maureen Johnson.

The Last Little Blue Envelope is the sequel to Johnson's earlier novel 13 Little Blue Envelopes.

More than a great sequel, this book is a wonderful story in its own right. Realistically, The Last Little Envelope probably cannot stand alone.

I literally read both 13 Little Blue Envelopes as well as The Last Little Blue Envelope in a matter of fifteen hours, and fell in love. When I initially read the first installment, I felt like Maureen Johnson had intended to leave it open ended for the reader to piece together themselves, but at the same time, it seemed to conclude itself. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading the last book.

The plot was fast, yes, and in this book, unlike the first one, the characters definitely were more developed, so in that regard it was absolutely wonderful. Oliver, the oh-so-mysterious, snobby and tall, dark and handsome dude was...well, hot. I do wish we'd gotten to know him better once we'd found out his motives behind the blackmailer-façade. I found myself wanting to know more about him, and I really hope that Johnson explores this relationship a little more in *crosses fingers* yet another installment! Keith in this book was a lot more tolerable, as in a lot less spasmodic. But, seriously, can someone PLEASE tell me what was up with his flirting with Ginny despite the fact that his girlfriend was about five feet away!? I loved him. I had faith in him, dammit. Keith, WHY?!

I really enjoyed watching Ginny find her confidence and independence, and really look forward to a third installment. I need to know more about Oliver! If you enjoyed the first book, you'd definitely enjoy this one. Aunt Peg really had something when she said, "you can never visit the same place twice. Each time, it's a different story" and this one is a good one.

The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson begins with Ginny getting an e-mail from a boy named Oliver who says he found the envelopes that were stolen. Ginny heads to England and meets up with him and he tells her that he not give her the envelopes until she has completed the mission detailed in the last envelope and he must split the sale of the final piece of art. Ginny goes off on the journey with Oliver along with Keith and his new girlfriend Ellis.

In the Last Little Blue Envelope Maureen Johnson gives readers exactly what they would expect. The book is fun and adventurous and Ginny really comes into her own and grows up. There isn't as much adventure as in the last book but there is still enough to keep readers happy. This is a fun and fast read that will entertain readers who enjoyed the last book.

Appropriateness: There's a little romance in this book but no sex. The quartet of kids (who are all at least 18 at this point) get plastered on New Years Eve and suffer massive hangovers. I would recommend this book to readers 13+

A couple of weeks ago when author Maureen Johnson announced on twitter that her newest book in the Little Blue Envelope series was up on NetGalley I put in my request for the e-galley and found the first book 13LBE to start reading. 13 Little Blue Envelopes was this random collection of letters from Ginny's dying aunt Peg that lead Ginny all across Europe in search of clues and tasks. I finished the book having enjoyed the ride but feeling there was so much left undone. The plot felt random and much like a wild goose chase. However, book 2, The Last Little Blue Envelope completely stole my heart and tied things up in a beautiful package similar to a Christmas gift from Harrod's. I loved the sense of purpose and growth book two brings. Maureen Johnson's writing is brilliant and funny, witty and adventurous. Book two picks up where book one left off with the 13th letter that was stolen from Ginny on a beach in Greece having been found by a man in London named Oliver. Oliver contacts Ginny via email in America offering her the last letter, but for a steep price.

Oliver was a welcome addition to the cast; I absolutely loved him! He's brooding and a loner, but deep down you have to know something serious is going on for him to act the way he does. By the end I found myself wishing we knew even more about him. But the New Year's scene in Dublin and at the train station are enough to keep me tied over until book three...please Maureen tell us there is one!? Keith is back as immature and quirky as ever, plus he has a new "friend" Elle. The four teens take on a quest spanning Paris to Ireland to find the last dying wish of Ginny's aunt that is simply magical. You'll feel you are traveling wright along with them because of all the small intricate details Maureen paints in to the picture.

More About the Author

Maureen Johnson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Like a lot of people who end up writing books, she was always reading. This paid off in the end, but also resulted in her not playing any sports, so she is spectacularly uncoordinated, and is easily injured by harmless household objects, like endtables.

She studied writing and theatrical dramaturgy at Columbia University. Before she could spend all her days writing, Maureen served up hamburgers in the company of mad scientists and talking skeletons in New York, tended bar in Piccadilly Circus, nervously worked alongside live tigers in Las Vegas, and once got mixed up with the entire cast of a major West End musical.

Maureen lives in New York City, and when she is not writing, spends her time in a relentless pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee. If you know where it is, get in touch with her at once.
