The concept of the story, and especially the way the story unfolded, was so preposterous that it makes Twilight realistic. Seventeen year old Ginny receives 13 envelopes from her aunt, and needs to follow the instructions one at a time. This involves going to Europe and getting into stupid situations that miraculously resolve themselves. The first quarter of the story wasn't bad. The envelope containing Ginny's instructions to help an artist through donating a generous gift, were described with believable build-up to the resolution, through details from the author and Ginny making decisions that made sense. But then it was just downhill into stupidity. Situations that were so unbelievable, but not in a sense that was supposed to be humorous, just finding an easy way to explain away the chapter and move onto the next envelope. Plus Ginny was very two dimensional. I do not recommend this book at all.
