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

Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle, 352 pages

The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson
A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green
The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle

Three interconnected stories, each written by a different young adult writer (I've only read Green before) are a wonderful romp through a Christmas Eve of romance and angst. I loved how each story was separate, and yet the book connected all three, and were a part of one complete narrative.

There is Jubilee, stuck on a train to her grandparents after her parents are put in jail after being involved in a Flobie Christmas ornament riot.
Stuart, who has had his heart broken by a cheerleader ( She was a first class witch, and her red lipstick didn't match her skin)
Jeb, trying to meet up with Addie, his girlfriend who works in a Starbucks.
The cheerleaders, who get stranded at The Waffle House, causing the assistant manager and his friends to risk life and limb to get a Twister game to play, and hopefully make all their dreams come true, as teenage boys would imagine.
Tinfoil Man, a minor character who wanders through each story in his tinfoil clothes.

Lots of humor, gentle romance, and characters learning a bit more about themselves. This was a fun book, that make me feel there was a snowstorm going on outside. A great book to read before Christmas. And an angel might even get her wings.

Just finished this one myself, loved it! Maureen Johnson is always insanely funny and I'm becoming a huge John Green fan, too, this was my third thing by him.
