The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson
Despite its trashy, unrepresentative cover, Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes has been a favourite at Readings, so we were excited but hesitant at the appearance of The Last Little Blue Envelope. Would it be as good? If not, would it sully the memory of the first one? Such a quandary; to read or not? Well, on a cold, wet winter’s eve, temptation got the better and I am glad it did.
But you know what, I really can’t tell you much about the story because you may not have read the first one, so trust me, get your hands on a copy and get reading. Then you are ready for this, lucky you! Ginny’s aunt may still be dead but that woman has more joie de vivre than a lot of living people and the journey she takes her niece on illuminates her uniqueness. So do yourself a favour, you won’t be disappointed.
For ages 11 and up.
