An Abundance of Katherines by John Green



Imagine if you were dumped by 19 people, and they all had the same name.



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. He’s also a washed up child prodigy with ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a passion for anagrams, and an overweight, Judge Judy-obsessed best friend. Colin’s on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which will predict the future of all relationships, transform him from a fading prodigy into a true genius, and finally win him the girl.

Letting expectations go and allowing love in are at the heart of Colin’s hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.

If you loved Paper Towns (I know I did) or if you enjoyed Looking for Alaska, you'll probably want to give this other book by John Green a read.  Green has quickly established himself as a popular young adult writer and his other books have climbed the Teens' Top Ten.  
Thanks to Mary for sending us yet another great book!  Look for it in the SRR and be the first to borrow it.
