Inside little blue envelopeare and instructions to buy a plane ticketIn envelope are directions to a specific London flatThe note in envelope tells Ginny F Unimpressive The way Johnson writes is annoying; than halfway into the book I really didn't know ANYTHING about the main character other than that she was on a ridiculous journey It was all action and no thought It was not insightful The main character was not likeable She wasn't unlikeable either She was just likedoing things She didn't have very many thoughts And never very insightful ones ie I like this boy I am sad I am happy I am angry COME ON There was no attempt made to make her a human a believable character Also the end was frustrating but kind of oddly moving a little at the same time But overall I was not in any way impressed
