LET IT SNOW- by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

Genre: Young Adult
Contemporary Publisher:
Penguin Series: Standalone.
Rating: 3.5/5

Summary: Its Christmas Eve and Gracetown has been buried by snow. But the weather is more
than just an inconvenience. When one girl unexpectedly steps off a stranded train, she
sets off series of life-changing events.

Soon fourteen pumped up cheerleaders will descend on the local waffle house, the
Dukes DVD night will be rudely interrupted for a twister mission, and a lovesick barista
will determine the fate of a single teacup pig...

As the three stories collide, strangers cross paths and romance blossoms with heart
warming consequences.

Let it snow was one of my best winter reads. It is a book with three holiday romances as the cover suggests by three very talented and promising authors. What i really liked about this book was the setting and how each story is connected to the other, and how characters in one story pop up in the other two stories and at the end how the characters all amalgamate and interact with each other.

The first story is "THE JUBILEE EXPRESS" by maureen Johnson. Here we meet jubilee ..yes that's her name and if you want to know why her name sounds like some kind of celebration, hmm read the book you'll find out. As jubilee is getting all prepared to spend her christmas eve which also happens to be the one year anniversary with her boyfriend Noah, she drastically gets a news that her parents are arrested and due to which she's put on a train to go to Florida to her grandparents. In the train she meets Jeb and a group fifteen cheerleaders cult. Due to the snow blizzard the train stops and so she gets off the train and ends up at a waffle house where she meets Stuart...the charming guy who wears plastic..yeah and how they end up together. I personally loved this story the most i loved both jubilee and stuart and how jubilee realized that she deserved better in life and Stuart moving on with life and how mature they become as characters. Jubilee as a character was humorous , witty and fun

The second story is " A cheertastic Christmas miracle " by john green. Here we meet Tobin our protagonist , and his friends JP and Duke whose name is actually Angie.
Its Christmas eve and tobin's parents are not home as they are stuck outside due to the snowstorm and its dukes time for a DVD night but a call from their friend keun informing them about the cheerleaders make both JP and Tobin go to the waffle house and then starts all the adventure and how Tobin and and Angie find out that their friendship is a lot more complicated than it seems. I loved the story its my second favourite and as a character i liked duke a lot and how she takes control.

The third story is "The Patron Saint of Pigs" by Lauren Myracle. The characters here are Addie and Jeb. Addie is shown as a self absorbed girl who is in tears over her breakup with her boyfriend Jeb..This story was my least favorite i didn't quite like the character development , i know its a short story and a lot cant be given out but i still wished if a few more pages were added than maybe we could have connected well enough with the characters and moreover the ending of the story was very abrupt and seemed very rushed. But i loved the tea cup pigs had me googling right after reading the book.

The other characters of the book like the tin foil guy , Stuarts mum were very interesting and humorous to read about.

Let it snow has loads of humor, teenage dramas , love, friendship, breakup and a lot more. It is highly recommended to read it. Its not a serious read but a very light and sweet read which you can read on a lazy winter day with your PJ's on and hot chocolate
