I would rate “Let It Snow” by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle a 3. 5 Star book. It was a cute holiday read with a blizzard and a lot of teenage love/problems. This is the perfect book to curl up with when it’s cold outside. I read it in less than 2 days.
The novel is split into three short stories all wrote by different authors. I liked this idea if it was excited right. I thought the stories tied together good, but the tone of the story changed from one story to another. The short stories are; “The Jubilee Express” by Maureen Johnson and “A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle” by John Green, and “The Patron Saint of Pigs” by Lauren Myracle. I liked how even though there were multiple authors, they were still able to tie all the stories together even if only by a thread.
The Jubilee Express was my favorite out of the three stories. It was a predicable story, but I liked it nonetheless. It was so sweet and cute. It truly made the entire novel. I thought if the rest of the book is as cute and romantic as this one, I will love it!
A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green was okay. I was expecting a lot more from John Green only because he was the author that is the most famous among the three YA authors. I was underwhelmed by the overall plot and characters. Although the action to this story made me keep reading.
The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle was alright. It really tied the other two stories into it by the end of the novel. It was cute but not eventful. It was merely just the wrap up story
This short story collection is perfect if you are looking for a light Christmas read. I was not disappointed or wowed by the story. But next Christmas, I may pick it up again! The story has budding teenage romance and typical teenage clichés throughout the story.
