― John GreenLet It Snow

It's 3 short stories by different authors, that all connect. So it's like ONE book but in three parts with three points of view, and they are all set at Christmas time in the snow! Must not be in NZ then I guess!

  The first story is by Maureen Johnson, is titled The Jubilee Express  a girl-meets-boy-in-a-blizzard. Jubilee finds herself stranded on a train in Gracetown in a huge snowstorm. A trip to the Waffle House introduces her to Stuart and friendship, or maybe something more, starts to form...
A Cheetastic Christmas Miracle is written by the incredible (and hilarious) John Green. Tobin, JP and the Duke (aka Angie) are on a mission. In this snowy adventure to the destined salvation of the Waffle House, with visions of cheerleaders, twister and hash browns dance sweetly in there heads.: nerdy guy's adventures with his brainy (in this case, Asian) friend and their one-of-the-boys, liable-to-say-anything platonic girl pal. And Lauren Myracle's THE PATRON SAINT OF PIGS shows that lost love can be found again with the help of Starbucks, angels, and even a pig. 

“We are all flawed, my dear. Every one of us. And believe me, we've all made mistakes. You've just got to take a good hard look at yourself, change what needs to be changed, and move one, pet.” 
― Lauren MyracleLet It Snow

Great concept and it will be a big hit in the library- it has John greens name on the cover!
