Let It Snow

Let It Snow: Three Holiday Stories
John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle
352 pages

"Silly girl, it's not what the universe gives us that matters. It's what we give the universe."

Its Christmas Eve, and three teenagers are stuck in the biggest snow storm to hit North Carolina in years.When Jubilee's train to Florida halts due to a ginormous snow drift in the middle of the tracks, she finds herself totally confused in a house where Jewish people celebrate Christmas. Then there is Angie, who is need of some of the Waffle House's greasy and sloppy hash browns, and drags the guys away from James Bond to come along. And Addie must still navigate her way through town to her early morning shift at Starbucks - because no matter what the circumstance, people will always need their coffee. Their small town of Gracetown as been turned into a winter wonderland of perilous mishaps and a little Christmas magic.

Let It Snow is the perfect holiday read - a perfect blend of humor, fun, and great writing. Green, the author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, Johnson, and Myracle, three of today's best Young Adult authors, each a have a writing style very unique, yet they flow together perfectly.

I loved how these stories were individual, yet interconnected, as you would be reading one story, and then a character from the previous one would show up and you laugh and say, "Hey! Wait! Is that the guy...I remember him!"

This story was so feel good, the characters so relate able - one will find themselves wishing for a blizzard to snow them in for a day or two as well!
