This is a continuation of "13 Little Blue Envelopes". Potential spoilers for the first book: Ginny didn't get to finish her aunt's "treasure hunt" when her backpack with the envelopes was stolen in Greece. She had one envelope left.. Back at home in the US, Ginny hears from someone who has that last envelope, and he's in London. Ginny decides to travel back to London to get her hands on that last envelope and keep going. While in London, she looks up the boy she'd been dating, Keith. Ginny, Keith, and two others set off to follow the instructions on the last envelope that brings them to a few different European countries. I really enjoyed this one. It appears I read the first book 6 years ago!! I found it interesting that I commented in that review that I wasn't a fan of Keith; still not in this book, either. However, I did like the new guy, Oliver, who was the one who found Ginny's envelopes. Also enjoyed "travelling" around Europe with Ginny and her friends; I particularly enjoyed the B&B in... I think it was Belgium (cats!).

Seventeen-year-old Ginny Blackstone precipitously travels from her home in New Jersey to London when she receives a message from an unknown man telling her he has the letters that were stolen just before she completed a series of mysterious tasks assigned by her now dead aunt, an artist.

Ginny Blackstone spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt 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 the adventure was supposed to end.

Now a mysterious boy has contacted Ginny from London, saying he's found her bag. Finally she can finish what she started. But instead of ending her journey, the last letter starts a whole new one, and Ginny must hold on to her wits . . . and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.

I always thought the prequel was awkward and over-romanticized. I felt like I was reading a travel guide rather than a YA novel. Even from the start of this book, though, I could tell that Maureen has had time to develop her voice as a writer, and I found the sequel to be much more enjoyable than its predecessor. I loved the little added twist known as Oliver who was added to the story of the 13th envelope. He was a great addition to the quirky little cast of characters Maureen had previously set up. This book managed to pick up plot details that were left unsolved in the previous book, which made for a thoroughly satisfying conclusion. I ended up completely loving the sequel, and I'm incredibly glad Maureen decided to give it another shot. Totally worth it. Rating: 5/5

In her conclusion to 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Maureen Johnson wraps Ginny's story in a sparkly box, drops it on our front porch and flies away via umbrella. NOTE :: If you are reading this review without reading the first book, you will be spoiled, just a little bit. I was wondering how the thirteenth envelope would find its way back to Ginny. As it was, Ginny didn't need to find it, she basically figure out what she was suppose to do. However, its contents still hung over our heads, mysterious, giving us no closure. What did Aunt Peg have to say? Where would Aunt Peg have sent her next? In The Last Little Blue Envelope, we find some familiar characters and are introduced to some new faces. The way in which Aunt Peg's letters make their way back to Ginny is quite plausible. We're introduced to the mysterious and aloof Oliver and the fun and spontaneous Ellis, who accompany Keith and Ginny on the wild race to complete the request of the last letter. I wasn't sure how she would do it, but Maureen managed to pull out from - seemingly - thin air a great plot, with elements from the first novel that I loved so much, while still allowing this book to be its own story. We travelled to old and new places, gained new experiences and found the final piece to the puzzle of Aunt Peg. The ending came so quickly that it left me wishing there was another envelope hidden somewhere that would allow us to continue travelling with Ginny and the gang. If you enjoyed the first book, you'd definitely enjoy this one. There were more people involved and so, more relationships to explore, more complexities to deal with and more things to see. It really is true, "you can never visit the same place twice. Each time, it's a different story" and this one is a good one. [arc via NetGalley]

Over all, I enjoyed this book. It was a great wrap up for the previous book. With that said, there were parts that bugged me. Ginny is a teenage girl, about to graduate from high school. Don't you think she would know better than to let strange men blackmail her into going to other countries with them, and not tell anyone? The other thing about her, were there were parts in this book I found her to be... selfish. But that could be the teenager thing. Also, it didn't take long for Keith's bullying to start wear thin for me. I found myself really liking Ellis (Keith's girlfriend) fairly quickly, whether I wanted to or not. As for the story? I love "the hill". If you read it, you know what I mean. If you didn't, you NEED to go get this book and read it, so you do know what I mean. As I read this book, I found myself wanting to be eccentric, like Ginny's dead aunt. But not excessively so, like the aunt, but I would want to be just enough so that I amused myself and others. But I think to pull that off you would need to be either very rich or very broke. I found the ending vague, with loose ends. Does this leave it open to a sequel? I thought this was supposed to be the sequel? As much as I liked this book, it did take me 2 stints from the library to read it. But that could be a comment on me, the book, or just the time of year. Over all, it was very different from the first, but still a fun read.

The Last Little Blue Envelope in some ways was even better than the first book.I loved the fact that there was a consistency of characters unlike in the first book, where Ginny travelled too much to have a consistent friend by her side.I had so much fun reading this book and I'm so sad that it ended so soon. I wish it hadn't.The only thing I did not like about this book was the ending. I wish there had been a better closure. It didn't feel like an ending, to be honest. It was as if the author just left it unfinished.Though the journey up until then was absolutely enjoyable, entertaining and so much fun!
