How I Found It: John Green

This book marks off the “A Book You Have Read Within 24 Hours” badge on the 40 Book Reading Challenge from Once Upon a Book Club

During a very book heavy winter break when I was in college, I purchased literally every book by John Green. And for whatever reason, this was the only one that I didn’t actually read, which is probably the most ironic thing I have ever done. But I finally read it, mainly because it became a Netflix movie and I have a rule that I can’t see the movie until I read the book.

On Christmas Eve, Jubilee’s parents get arrested at a convention. She is then shipped to Florida on a train that also holds lovestruck Jeb and a whole team of cheerleaders. Caught in a dangerous storm, we follow 3 couples as the night turns into day and their lives change forever.

Despite there being 3 authors, their styles are extremely similar and so it doesn’t feel too jarring between stories. Also, the whole concept is that the 3 stories are all set in the same town, so the authors did communicate among themselves about what happens in each to keep the story succinct.

I think the story is incredibly sweet and entertaining (I mean, I read it in 1 day), but I can’t imagine that it would be memorable. I feel like I have read a lot more stories recently that are better. I would probably rank it as 3.5 out of 5 stars, but that is without seeing the movie yet.

If you guys have any thoughts or ideas, feel free to leave a comment, find me on the social medias at @elizabooksblog, or email me at elizabethslick@elizabethsbookstore.blog. And as always, I’ll see you all in the next book!

A Movie Update:

For my friends that are more movie buffs than book buffs, this movie is clearly based on the book, but has taken a lot of creative license in the storyline. I personally enjoyed the movie, but I truly think that the movie and the book are two separate entities.
