I've been reading a disconcerting amount of bad and mediocre books recently. I don't know why. I haven't hit a book that I can get all worked up about in months. I expect that will change with spring publishing, but my library is always just a little behind (I have nothing to do with ordering, sadly). That said, I did actually like this book, quite a lot. In fact, I gave my copy away before I even checked it in. With a cover rather similar to Geography last week (although 13 was published first), it's a standard girl-finding-herself plot. When Ginny gets a package from her dead aunt with $1,000 and instructions to buy a backpack and head to London, it sets off a series of adventures that culminate in self-discovery. Like you were expecting something else. It was a tad predictable, but wholly enjoyable, so it was forgiven. Clearly an easy sell for girls, 12+
By the way, if you've read something Fabulous recently, do recommend it!
