it was amazing
bookshelves: realistic, teen
Read in April, 2011

I got this at the Texas Library Association conference and was absurdly excited to see it. I loved Ginny from the first book. She's so spunky, but she suffers from the occasional case of low self-esteem-- i.e., not thinking she is brave even though she backpacked across Europe by herself at 18! Ginny has the opportunity to evolve and mature further within this novel, and her relationships get accordingly complicated.

This book keeps the same characters from the first ones (thankfully), with the introduction of two new traveling companions. Neither are particularly wanted on the journey. If you recall, at the end of 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Ginny's backpack was stolen in Greece. She never did read the last letter. Well, as you can guess from the title, someone has found the last envelope-- and he's blackmailing Ginny to let him go with her (and split the art proceeds). Keith (from the last book) and his new girlfriend follow. While Keith is wanted, the new girlfriend is an unwelcome surprise. Anyway, adventure ensues.

Fast paced, great locations, nicely done romance. The ending was perfect. Highly recommended to anyone interested in contemporary teen fiction.
