Let it Snow is a collection of three stories, one each by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle, the characters of which are all connected to each other by the worst blizzard Gracetown has seen in the last 50 years.
1. The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson
This story is about a girl named Jubilee, yes really named Jubilee, who is dating the oh-so-perfect Noah and is on Christmas Eve on the way to Florida to see her grandparents because of a family emergency. While en routé, her train gets stuck just outside of Gracetown because of the storm and she's with a guy named Jeb and 14 cheerleaders. They all go to the Waffle House nearby where Jubilee meets Stuart and ends up spending the Christmas with his Jewish family and more.
This was my favorite one out of the three stories, and her writing seemed more like John Green's than his own did in this book.
2. A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green
This one was a very, very non-John Green story for me, because (spoiler alert) - no one dies. When Keun (who works at the Waffle House) calls his friends Tobin, JP and The Duke to come to the Waffle House because, duh, it's filled with cheerleaders, they end up getting stuck in the most snowy streets ever, and Tobin realizing that The Duke is more than just The Duke.
This was a fun-filled ride, though I think a few parts were stretched on for too long. But yes, the writing, as usual, was marvelous.
3. The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle
The last story of the book is about Addie who just broke up with Jeb. Or whom Jeb broke up with, whatever. The story involves her realizing (with a lot of help from her friends and one angel, not a real one, just her angel) that she's a little too self-absorbed and needs to change. Also, she's on a mission to deliver her best-friend Tegan's teacup-sized pig and as Dorrie (her other best-friend) is sure Addie would be too drowned in another one of her own crises, is a fun-ride.
The writing was smart and quick, and though I know the story demanded it, I hated Addie's constat whining.
It was a 3.5/5 read for me as I'm not one for sweet winter romances, but if you are, this one won't disappoint you. - 4 minutes ago
