An Abundance of Katherines by John Green



From the very popular author of the books Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns and The Fault in our Stars comes another laugh out loud funny and quirky book by John Green.

When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun ? but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.

“This book has so many things to love; a road trip, romance (in quirky sweet ways), interesting characters, an entertaining story and so much more. I think the real heart of the story is a boy trying to figure out how he matters in the world.” by Shannon@ Books Devoured
