Virginia Blackstone, aka Ginny,is your regular, shy,Americanteenager girl. She had arunaway aunt that died after she left the U.S. and didn't communicate with anyone back home. One day, Ginny gets a letter from her aunt -- months after she's passed. There are thirteen letters in all, each one containing a task that Ginny has to complete before she can open the next letter. These letters take Ginny on a European journey
First of all, let me tell you why I got this book. So, I read the synopsis, and this idea of traveling, not knowing were to go, opening one envelope at a time, meeting new people, the mystery of it all really captured my attention. This was different from any other thing I'd read about or even heard of.

Here's what I thought:

Ginny was way too passive for my own taste. Sure, she's shy but does that mean she just does what others want? And it also annoyed me that I didn't get to know her very well.

I kept seeing this book on the shelf every time I would go to the library and it's been on my TBR a LOOOONG time. But each time I would go to the library and see it there it was almost as if it were saying, Read me!!!! Check me out. You won't be sorry!!!! So I finally gave in to the voices and decided to give it a try. And I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about reading it. Although, I'm not sure why. I love Maureen Johnson's books. I guess I was expecting it to be kind of a fluffy te ...more

The book itself could have been a little better, but I love the concept of being able to leave something behind for someone, like the trip.
This is a great book because Ginny finds out a lot about herself as she is following the directions of her aunt. She creates all sorts of connection in her travels around Europe and meets her uncle who she thought didn't exist.
This was a good book. I loved the concept of following letters and doing tasks and not know at all what is ahead. I wish I could travel the world that way...
