I like the concept of taking on a series of challenges which are revealed after each has been completed. I certainly would not be as adventurous as Ginny, traveling around Europe alone, but following a book character is a safe way to explore “what ifs.” I questioned the wisdom of some of Ginny’s decisions, but I had to remind myself that she is 17 years old. It was satisfying to see that she learned something in each of her challenges, even to the point that sometimes the teacher’s intended lesson totally misses the mark. As a teacher, I could relate to this. The ending left enough uncertainty for me to want to read the sequel.
