Before Let It Snow I hadn’t read any novels with interconnecting stories. But I had always loved movies with interconnected. I came across Let It Snow after I finished reading The Fault In Our Stars, and was looking for other books by John Green. Let It Snow is my favorite Christmas themed book.
It is written by Maureen Johnson, John Green, and Lauren Myracle. The first story is The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson. Jubilee’s parents are obsessed with the Flobie Santa Village, so much that they named their daughter after one of the Flobie Santa Village building, Jubilee Hall. After an incident at the department store, Jubilee finds herself spending Christmas Eve on a train to Florida to stay with her grandparents, instead of being with her boyfriend on their anniversary. On the train we meet Jeb, who is trying to call his ex-girlfriend. Her train gets stuck in Gracetown and she decides to get out of the train instead of being stuck with 14 cheerleaders. She finds herself at Waflle House where she meets Stuart. Personally this is my favorite story of the three.
The next story is A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green. It revolves around three friends Duke, Tobin, and JP trying to reach Waffle House with Twister when they get a call from Keun whom me first met in The Jubilee Express. Duke isn’t really all that excited to drive through the storm to get to the Waffle House just to play twister with 14 cheerleaders, but she has no choice but to accompany her two friends. I found this story a little cliche but it was still really good.
The final story is The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle. Addie is still hung up on Jeb, her ex-boyfriend, whom she cheated on in a drunken state. She calls her friends over to talk, only for them to tell her that she can be self-absorbed and doesn’t think of others. In order to prove them wrong she says she will get Tegan, her friend a teacup pig. She later forgets to pick up the pig and finds out it has already being adopted by someone else. Addie some how manages to get the address of the person who adopted it and finds out it is the woman who she had met earlier claiming to be a Christmas Angel.
The Tinfoil Guy who is my favorite cameo in all the tree stories. My favorite part of the story is when all the main characters from the three different stories are present at the coffee shop. It is an exciting moment with all the characters having their happily ever after. It was a comforting feeling to see everything fall in place perfectly. The stories fit together perfectly.
I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a great story for the holidays, on that will touch your heart.
