The first story (Maureen Johnson) was fine. The second story (John Green) was great, and he was the reason I go the book anyway. I couldn't get through the third story (Lauren Myracle), but I rather expected that because I already knew I didn't like her writing.

Let It Snow is a fantastically fluffy Christmas read, of three intertwining stories by three different popular YA authors. It is funny, sweet and surprisingly well executed, and of course, full of holiday spirit. The different authors provide the different voices required by each protagonist in the three stories and all give a different perspective of Christmas in Gracetown.

The stories are a little farfetched but their links are too adorable to not be enjoyed. First in The Jubilee Express you have Jubilee, or Julie as she likes to be called, whose parents wind up in jail on Christmas Eve (I was not expecting that!) and she's shipped off on a train to Florida to be with her grandparents. However, due to an enormous snowstorm the train stops en route and winds up outside Gracetown. Jubilee doesn't realise, as she sets off from the train in pursuit of the Waffle House in the near distance, that a chain of events has been set off, involving quite a few different teenage residents of Gracetown. When we leave off from The Jubilee Express, we meet Tobin and friends in A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle who have received a phone call from their friend, assistant manager at the same Waffle House as before mentioned, to get their asses down to the Waffle House in a race against two other groups of guys. Oh, and they better bring Twister. And then we meet the character I found most hardest to sympathise with - Addie, in The Patron Saint of Pigs. She annoyed me the most, but I reminded myself to be calm and to see it through. It was worth it just to see how the stories all met up in the end, but I feel like she got an ending she didn't quite deserve. Maybe I'm being a little harsh, even though she was more than a little selfish. But with the spirit of the holidays, and forgiveness, and everything, she got a Christmas miracle - and one she shouldn't forget.

Other than my issues with Addie, my only other problem was I felt like I didn't have enough time with these characters!

Let It Snow is the kind of light, fluffy read that will make you want to drink hot chocolate and watch the snow fall and maybe go out and have a crazy adventure yourself. ( )

A holiday novel split up into three different stories that come together in the end. Even though it´s march, I smell cinnamon candles and very tasty food. If I were to have a night in, watching chick flicks and eating crap, I´d rather read this book a thousand times. All of these best-selling authors have given us the new “Love Actually” (the writing being quite similar to the movie). It is a great book for teens and tweens. Maureen Johnson’s story was my favorite followed by John´s and Lauren’s being last because I found the main character very irritating. “The Jubilee express” is about a girl who is meant to be spending Christmas with her boyfriend but her parents are involved in an incident in which she is shipped off to her grandparent´s. However, the biggest blizzard that has it the city in years has happened on this night and Jubilee´s train is stuck. Jubilee was obviously my favorite character because she was very quirky and clever but clumsy at the same time. She is so witty and clever and her addition to the book makes it a thousand times better. As in John´s part, well, I am a massive John Green fan but his writing was not the best. I think it’s because it had to be crammed into a smaller amount of pages, but at least there’s still an essence of his writing. In this part of the book there are three groups of friends trying to win a race to get to the waffle house. Now, the last part of the book was not very good as I said before. Halfway through I wanted to stop reading it because I was so annoyed. Anyways, this collaboration is romance at its best. Who knew so much chaos could turn into something so whimsical and amorous. It’s a quick read despite of the book being quite big. I do not think it’s the most amazing piece of literature, let alone one of the authors’ best work. But it is a perfectly entertaining Christmas read and I highly recommend it. I am definitely looking forward to reading it next Christmas.

Pang. “I felt the pang for him, right in the middle of my chest” pg 21. Noun.

Yelp. “all fourteen of them, yelping and squealing and trailing snowflakes” pg 38. Noun.

Rattle. “herattled the door a little” pg 63. to make a rapid succession of short sharp noises. Intransitve verb. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
Lauren Myracle- For Dad, Sarah Lee, and the lovely mountain town of Brevard, NC... all chock-full of grace.
John Green - To Ilene Cooper, who has guided me through so many blizzards
Maureen Johnson - For Hamish, who embodied the "go down the hill really fast and if something gets in your way, turn" school of teaching me how to deal with a snowy slope. And for all who toil behind the facade of a corporate monolith, fo revery person who has to say grande latte three thousand times a day, for every soul who's ever had to deal with a broken credit card reader in the holiday rush... this one is for you.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142412147, Paperback)

The New York Times bestseller!

Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.
