Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket.
In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat.
The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist.
Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again?
Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it's all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson is a modern day coming of age story. It centers around Virginia ‘Ginny’ Blackstone, a 17 year old girl who is given a letter in a blue envelope. The letter tells her to fly to London, but she can’t bring any crutches. What ensues is a fantastic adventure.
“I have a crush on a building. I’d been there several times but never to work. I always knew there were offices in there, but that fact never penetrated, really. You don’t work in the Empire State Building. You propose in the Empire State Building. You sneak a flask up there and raise a toast to the whole city of New York.”
