Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most-crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High---from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last.
Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death---and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

Would you follow the directions?From the back cover of Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
Would you travel around the world?
Would you open the envelopes one by one?
Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket.
In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat.

Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/bloke-about-town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous---though utterly romantic---results. But will she ever see him again?
Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it's all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.

But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larger problem than being without him?
