When seventeen-year-old Ginny receives a packet of mysterious envelopes from her favorite aunt, she leaves New Jersey to criss-cross Europe on a sort of scavenger hunt that transforms her life.
Reviews & Summaries
The quest-like plot keeps readers turning pages, and neither Ginny nor the reader can predict what the next envelope will hold. Johnson creates a likable, but realistically flawed, character in Ginny-- her desires to follow her Aunt's wishes and become more outgoing are balanced by her frustration with Peg's flightiness and the challenges of being constantly thrusted into new and intimidating environments.
