Review- Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle


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.

Let It Snow is a collection of three interwoven shorter stories by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, that take place during one Christmas that ends up being a lovely experience full of laughter, love and warmth for the characters and the reader alike. While it took me a really, really long time to finish this book, it is impressive how well it has been written, which is not a surprise given the contributors. Each writer brings something unique to their story, making the entire book a superb read.

The first story titled The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson was a wonderful story that kicked off the book in a way that left me wanting for more and at the same time, feeling super content with the way the story itself ended. John Green’s A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle, while a beautiful story of friendship and love, was slightly underwhelming given the huge name associated with it. But it was a good story overall, and that’s what matters. The last sorry, Laureen Myracle’s The Patron Saint of Pigs was a cute and coming of age sorry that left me laughing and crying tears of joy.

Overall, this is an amazing collection of three stories set in the freezing cold but that’ll warm your heart, just like your favourite beverage does at the end of a tiring day.
