“I’m Keith,” he said, “and you’re . . . clearly mad, but what’s your name?”


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.

Personal Experiences

I have wanted to read a Maureen Johnson book ever since I found out that John Green knows her (and knows her well). At first I thought they would be a little too romance-y for me, but now know they are like a PG-13 movie. Maureen has this style that isn’t too much of anything. Not too much suspense, mystery, or adventure (except for romance. There is a lot of that). She has an outstanding plot all lined up for us that keeps us reading to see what is in the next envelope. 


“She was standing in the airport of Copenhagen, staring at a doorway, trying to figure out if it was (a) a bathroom and (b) what kind of bathroom it was. The door merely said H.
Was she an H? Was H “hers”? It could just as easily be “his”. Or “Helicopter Room: Not a Bathroom at All”

“I like you because you were mad. And you’re pretty. And pretty sane for a mad person.”

“What the hell is wrong with you?” he asked.
It was a good question.”

“Sometimes, life leaves you without directions, without guideposts or signs. When this happens, you just have to pick a direction and run like hell.”
