An Abundance of KatherinesAn Abundance of Katherines by John Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Genre: YA Contemporary




Colin Singleton is a genius and he has a thing for Katherines, not Catherines, but Katherines. A little weird but there has been 19 Katherines so Colin's quirk is something that has brought him a lot of heartache. And how does a genius deal with heartache well he analysis it mathematical of course, The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability.

Luckily Colin has a great friend named Hassan who convinces Colin to go on a road trip to put the Katherines behind him, literally and figuratively. Ending up in Gutshot, Tennessee to see the obviously fake gravesite of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Colin and Hassan meet Lindsey Lee Wells.

Lindsey Lee is smart but she is pretending to be something she is not, a popular small town girl. Lots of weird stuff happens like a wild hog hunt and a cheating boyfriend but the bonds of friendship between Lindsey, Colin and Hassan deepen. Could this be the end of Katherines for Colin?

Again John Green can tell a teens story like no other. Not as good as Looking for Alaska but still wonderfully written and insightful.

Thanks for coming by,
Amy
