Summary: 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

Review: The Last Little Blue Envelope was a such a satisfying conclusion to 13 Little Blue Envelopes that it isn't even funny.
First of all, I'm just glad Ms. Johnson wrote this!! And I am so lucky to have read 13 Little Blue Envelopes only last summer and didn't have to wait about 5 years for this one! That would have been an awful wait. I was satisfied with the first one but this made it so much better and tied up all those burning questions that I had!

Again Ginny got to leave home way too easily for my liking but it's not real so it doesn't matter too much. Ginny was more developed in this, as were the rest of the characters. I felt like I got to know her much better and I liked her a lot more!
And with this sequel we also got a couple of new characters. That were AMAZING! I loved Oliver and Ellis. Especially Oliver. If you've read the first one you'd be like but what about Keith. He was a total jerk. Highlight to read: And Ellis is his girlfriend...what a jerk! He didn't even tell Ginny!

I was really surprised at how things turned out in the end and I loved watching the adventures as they went on the journey for the last envelope.

Even if you didn't like the first one too much, I'd read this one because it is much better the the first and loose ends were tired up!!
