Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle – Book Review

These three stories are set in a small town during a snow storm around Christmas. There’s romance and friendship and miscommunication and it’s just lovely. A really great, quick read with not a huge amount of substance but not everything needs to be deep and meaningful. Sometimes, it’s nice to take a breath.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan- Book Review

full_entry_1208_1

There are two Will Graysons who accidentally meet one night. The first is a high school student who is trying to keep his head down and get through life despite having just one friend – the loudest, gayest, largest boy in the school, Tiny Cooper. The second is also a high school student, but he is depressed, but his online relationship with ‘Isaac’ is the only light in his otherwise dull existence. After they meet, both lives are changed, and everyone is forced to look at things that they were happy to avoid.

I really enjoyed this book. I heard of it some time ago, and love the idea of two authors creating a book together. It adds a different level to it. Now, it is absolutely a YA novel, and gets a bit cheesy and whatever as it goes on, but that’s fine. It’s a book, and it’s great to have a book with LGBT characters for YA. I’m searching for more recommendations, if anyone wants to contribute, I’d be pleased to hear more.
