Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it's all because of 13 little blue envelopes...
Ginny, aged 17, is left 13 little blue envelopes by her free-spirited young Aunt Peg. Little does she know just how much they will change her life...
* Inside envelope No 1 is money and instructions to buy a plane ticket.
* Inside envelope No 2 are directions to a specific London flat
* Inside envelope No 3 a note to Ginny says: Find a starving artist.
* And because of envelope No 4 Ginny and a man called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous - though utterly romantic - results.
"Equal parts poignant, funny and inspiring, with a delicious fairytale ending."
