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 really enjoyed this one. John Green is one of my favorite authors (Will Grayson, Will Grayson is FABulous) and this was my first chance to read Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle.
The thing I enjoyed the most about this collection is that the characters are interwoven throughout the stories. All of the protagonists attend the same high school and know each other by varying degrees.I loved the way each of the authors played off the other sections of the novel and it had me wondering how the writing process worked on this one.
All of the stories were sweet and funny with just enough setting thrown in to really put me in a holiday mood. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a Christmas themed story or a good contemporary YA romance.
