Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances

So I read this book a couple of weeks ago and haven't wrote about it yet!  Let it Snow is a book of 3 short stories about one big blizzard and one little town.  Each story is written by a different author and they kind of overlap so you know that the characters know one another but each story is about completely different things yet the same thing all at once: LOVE! 

It was a really cute book and was really fun to read when it was snowing and Christmastime.  All three authors are good at writing the different characters.  And I was pleased to find one of my personal favorite authors, Lauren Myracle, wrote the last story.  I also learned about two other authors that I had always meant to read something by but never got around to it! John Green, author of will grayson, will grayson & looking for alaska, and Maureen Johnson, author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes, wrote really great stories as well.  If you like comedy and romance, you should definitely check out this book!

Here is the synopsis:

"From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up–What do a Christmas Eve snowstorm, 14 perky cheerleaders, a Waffle House, and a guy covered in tin foil have in common? Answer: these romantic holiday stories. Through an interconnected cast of characters set in one small Southern town, each author reveals a serendipitous night in the life of a particular teen. In Johnson's Jubilee Express, level-headed Jubilee experiences a traumatic day during which her parents get arrested, her train gets stuck in the snow, and she breaks up with her boyfriend, but in the end finds a new love. Green deftly portrays the teen male perspective with humor and wit in his Cheertastic Christmas Miracle, which starts with an urgent quest for cheerleaders and ends with an eye-opening experience of finding true love right before one's eyes. In Myracle's Patron Saint of Pigs, while agonizing over the pain of a recent breakup, Addie learns about herself and gains respect for relationships at the same time. Tender without being mushy, these carefully crafted stories of believable teen love will leave readers warm inside for the holidays.–Madeline J. Bryant, Los Angeles Public Library
