Book Review: Let It Snow

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

This Christmas novel - featuring three stories from three of the most popular young adult novelists on the market - is actually three stories, cleverly intertwined to take place on one fateful Christmas Eve/Christmas morning in a small town with a train frozen on the tracks, a Waffle House and a Starbucks.

The Maureen Johnson novel was first, and had a few laugh out loud moments. The Lauren Myracle story was last, and also had a few funny moments.

But the John Green story - "A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle" - made me laugh so many times out loud, I snorted.

And laughed.

And cried at one point, I was laughing so hard.

This has become my new favorite Christmas novel. Perhaps ever.

I love the way the three stories tie into one another, with overlapping characters, but with seamless transition, and it's hard to tell that it was written by three distinct voices, as they meld together so well.

But really, it's all about the funny of John Green's story.

Highly, highly recommended!
