Synopsis

From the #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars 

Michael L. Printz Honor Book
Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist


Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be 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.

Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.

    I enjoyed reading through An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. It’s my favorite of all his books. The story is well told, and doesn't leave any hanging pieces like Paper Towns. The story is about Colin Singleton, a high school graduate who is a child prodigy and has dated 19 girls named Katherine. Him and his best friend Hassan go on a road trip after Colin broke up with Katherine XIV to help him clear his head. The story explores the value and meaning of relationships, as well as one’s sense of self: who we are and how we define ourselves. This is a theme somewhat similar to Paper Towns, but I find in Abundance of Katherines, John Green gives a more complete story. As the main character Lindsey Wells would say, it has a beginning, middle, and an end, as well as a good moral. Also, unlike Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska, none of the main characters disappear for a major portion of the story. I love stories that explore how we perceive relationships, and I believe John Green does a good job of this in An Abundance of Katherines.
