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

Michael L. Printz Honor Book

Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist

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. 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.


Colin Singleton always falls for girls named Katherine — and he's been dumped by all of them. Letting expectations go and allowing love in are part of Colin's hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.

I have read all of John Green's books, but this one is by far my favorite. The main character Colin Singleton manages to capture the awkward teenage angst that is humorously paired with him being a child prodigy, NOT a genius. Green brings in humor into every aspect of the book with Colin and his Muslim friend ending up in Gutshot, Tennessee while he is trying to create the relationship Theorem. I never experienced strict math in relationships, but I found myself endless laughing while I was reading on the subway. Fun read that will also make you think. "Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back"

An abundance of Katherines, by John Green is about a teen prodigy named Colin. Colin has dated a number of girls named Katherine, nineteen exactly.When his most recent relationship with Katherine number 19 ends Colin is sad. To take his mind off Katherine his best friend Hassan take Colin on a roadtrip. On this roadtrip they visit the crypt of an arch duke. There they meet Lindsey Lee Wells, a pre-med student and tour guide for the crypt. Colin and Lindsey fall in love and she breaks his Katherine dating sequence.

I really enjoyed this book and would suggest John Green lovers give it a try. It's a great read for girls who like quirky love stories and funny friendships.I look forward to reading this book again, and more novels by this author in the future.

An Abundance of Katherines was an amazing, witty book that keeps its readers amused and longing for more.Filled with random factoids, Abundance keeps readers laughing and intrigued. Green writes in such a way that his readers can relate to what the characters are feeling and thinking. The book brings to its audience great joy and sometimes deep sadness, which brings out Green's excellent writing style. Thank you, John Green, for gifting the world with another amazing book.
