The Last Little Blue Envelop by Maureen Johnson is a sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelop. I did not have the privilege to read the prequel to this book, but I think it’s an okay book to read as a stand alone. When I flipped through the pages, I had the sense of deja vu. I wasn’t sure what it was at the beginning, but it occurred to me that the storyline and the moral of the story is a little bit like P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern, where both of the characters in the books are left with a set of instruction by their loved ones who had just passed away.

This book is about soul-searching and finding yourself. An okay book to read for me, considering the humour and the misadventures that comes along with the book. The characters were well developed, though I wish I had the privilege to read the prequel of this book so that I could understand more about the characters and the plot.

I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I received a digital ARC of this book from Harper Collins via Netgalley and I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.

Book description:

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 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, and Ginny finds she must hold onto her wits-and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.
