This one had a lot more character development and was more fun, I thought. It was nice getting to know a few characters instead of brief encounters with a lit of different people. I also liked the purpose of this one more and knowing what the end game was.

I'm glad this sequel was written. Aunt Peg comes through strongly, both before and after her illness, and Ginny's conflicted emotions come through strongly as well - she was disturbingly passive in the first book. There's a real sense of closure in this one.

It's kinda off track realistically wise.

The Last Little Blue Envelope is a wonderful sequel and Maureen Johnson's quirky wit and great skill continue to shine. While characters that I was very attached to in the previous novel reappear, none of them remain static and everyone grows. Ginny, who truly came into her own in the last novel, also continues to grow up in different ways from the last novel. Of course, it's not all serious character growth. There's mad antics and cross-Europe capers that provide a lovely bit of humour and will spark wanderlust in any reader. A great follow-up that will make any fan of the first novel very happy.

I found this book very good. But also very up and down on emotions! Oliver blackmailing Ginny, then her falling for him. Keith being Keith, and everyone! Good read.

Finished it within a day! Couldn't put it down, it was just too good! I'm glad that Maureen Johnson isn't an author who sticks to a one lover thing! Makes it more realistic-ish somehow :) Definitely recommend this to you teen romance book lovers!

This book doesn't have as much travel adventure excitement, but it is still just as amazing because of the new character development. It also finishes up all the loose ends between Aunt Peg and Ginny quite nicely. :)

I liked this better than the first book. It has a more mature vibe, since our character has grown up and is no longer quite as naive. The romance was a bit predictable, but also sweet, and I applaud an author who doesn't stick to the "one-love-per-life" concept and isn't afraid to risk undermining some elements of the first book. I think she did so very expertly, and loved it.

Just like the first book, lots of travel descriptions, this time more through Ireland and France which is great. I was sad when it ended, and would wish for a sequel, but know there probably aren't enough ends left to launch one.

“I mean . . .” It was annoying when other people couldn’t get in your head and automatically catch up with your conversations.

if she did come back, it would never be the same. She would never look up at those black blinds with the same anticipation, or stare into that piece of patterned gold plastic in the door and think when the door opened, she would be greeted with a kiss. All of those little fantasies, so carefully cultivated, were wiped away. Maybe this was what Aunt Peg meant all along – returning was a weird thing. You can never visit the same place twice. Each time, it’s a different story. By the very act of coming back, you wipe out what came before.
