Sparkling white snowdrifts, beautiful presents wrapped in ribbons, and multicolored lights glittering in the night through the falling snow. A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.


I remember liking this book way more the first time around, which was when I was in high school but thats not saying I didn't enjoy this the second time around. I did, my favourite story was the last one by Lauren Myracle. It was the best story that intertwined all the characters within the book and I think it wrapped it up well and it left me with the closure I needed about all the characters we meet throughout the book. 

The only character I would have liked to understand more was the tinfoil guy, yeah I get it's suppose to be the weird guy in town that no one understands but throughout every story they talked about the tinfoil man and came across him in town. So, getting to know him a little more would have been nice.

Let It Snow was a cute easy holiday read about love, friendships and some bits about family. 

The first story is about a girl named jubilee who gets stranded in a strange town on her way to her grandparents house because he parents get into some trouble. Jubilee gets rescued by a boy she meets at a Waffle House while she struggles with her current boyfriend issues.

The second story is about Tobin who's parents get stuck in Boston during the holidays. Tobin has the house to himself and his two best friends, The Duke and JP when another friend, Keun calls them to make it to the Waffle House with Twister because fourteen cheerleaders are there because of the train stuck on the tracks.
The race to get to the Waffle house before the other coworkers friends since the rule was to not over rule the ratio of cheerleaders.

The third story is about Addie who has just broken up with her boyfriend because she kissed someone else during a party. She's a complete wreak and just wants to get back together with her boyfriend Jeb. They were suppose to meet on Christmas Eve to talk about things in Starbucks but he never shows, Addie cuts her hair and while all this is happening she has to save Christmas for her best friend Tegan because her Christmas present went missing from the store.
