Traveling by Airmail

13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

Lively. Fast. Fun. Breezy. Light. A great travel read. 13 Letters lead 17-year-old Ginny across Europe, letters written by her favorite artistic aunt. The characters are quirky and the dialogue is realistic.

In a few lines, Johnson captures the setting, the essence of the places Ginny visits, from London to Paris to Amsterdam to Copenhagen to Corfu. I had so much fun going on this trip with Ginny. This book isn’t your typical girly adventure in Europe—there was more content, art discussion, and character development.

 Can’t wait to read the recent new release The Last Letter by Maureen Johnson.
