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

Book: Let It Snow
Genre: YA Romance
Rating: A
For: Fun

I'm already getting behind in reviews since I finished this one a week or more ago,but I did want to tell you about it, so here goes!

This book is made up of three different stories, each written by a different author. I bought it awhile back (with my gift card!) simply because of John Green, of course. However, even though they are all different stories by different people, they are all tied together and I love how they did that!

The first one called The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson is told from the point of view of Jubilee, whose parents are suddenly not available on Christmas Eve, so she is heading, on a train, to her grandparents. The biggest storm of the century blows in, of course, and the train gets stranded. This is the story about who she meets on the train, how she is rescued and by whom, and how she ends up spending her Christmas day.

The second one, A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green, is from the point of view of Tobin, who is also without his parents on Christmas Eve. He is hanging out with his other two friends a girl named Duke and a guy named JP. They get a call from another guy telling them about how all these cheerleaders, whose train has been stranded because of the storm, are hanging out at the Waffle House and that they should come join the fun. So they go, but have numerous adventurous in the process and learn some cool stuff about each other.

Story number three, The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle told from Addie's point of view is all about how she is so sad about her recent break up. She is wishing so bad she could go back in time and redo things. Throughout the story, she learns that she needs to think less about herself and more about others.

In the end, it all ties together in such a fun way! I loved it! Just for a fun simple cute teen romance written by three great YA authors.
Other Reviews:


  1. I hadn't even heard of this book. Now I want to get it. Thanks!

  2. I have this on my PBS wishlist- which means it'll come in during August when it's stiffling hot out. Despite having only read one book by him, I love John Green.

  3. If you guys read it, come back and let me know what you think!

  4. When I saw there were three stories, I completely dismissed it. Then I read the last part where it all ties together...ugh! I need another book like I need another hole in my I LOVE YA romance. Gonna have to add it to the list. Booger!
