When 17 year old Ginny is left 13 little blue envelopes by her free-spirited but unreliable aunt Peg her adventure begins.
An adventure which will take her all around Europe from Harrods in London to the vestal virgins of Rome and introduce her to a whole range of different people including playwright/thief/man about town Keith and American tourist family the Knapp’s.
This book has all the elements of what could be a great book. Adventure, European travel, mystery and it probably would’ve been a good book if it had had an interesting main character.
I found Ginny to be annoying and whiny with very little character development. It’s like she spends the whole book going from place to place because she is being told to not because she wants too.
From what I’ve heard about Maureen Johnson I was expecting this book to be a lot better than it was.
