13 little blue envelopesGood young adult novels are always refreshing. I am a young adult fiction fan, as most of the books I read are from this category. ”13 little blue envelopes” is a travel related different young adult story. It is the first book in the Little Blue Envelopes series. I liked the premise and enjoyed reading. Other than the dramatic ending the book was good.

Dead Aunt sends niece on this unpredictable and slightly loony journey. When Virginia Blackstone (Ginny) receives the first blue envelope from her Aunt Peg in the mail, it sends her on an exciting and unknown adventure collecting remaining 12 blue envelopes and finding the clue and places. It is like she is playing the treasure hunt game with her aunt again  just like how it was in her childhood, except that her aunt is dead now. 17  year old Ginny sets on this adventure without thinking twice and reaches her first destination London, from there on its one big ride. What is the intension of this journey? Where will this unknown adventure take her?

Its a quick read, I finished reading  this book in a day. I don’t know whether or not the places mentioned in this book are Geometrically correct because I have no clue about that. But it was one heck of a journey. Romance is very weak in this book. Love interest between Ginny and boy from London was boring. End was little dramatic and unexpected, it could have been something different and exciting. My rating: 3 out of 5. If you are looking for a adventure filled young adult travel fiction for a change, then this is good choice.
