An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

"I figured something out. The future is unpredictable" (Epilogue, p. 213).
When Colin Singleton was a little boy, he was a child prodigy.  He read books about Aracamedies at the age of 4, he is a math whiz and loves to anagram.  Colin has another quirk, he has only ever dated girls named Katherine.  He has dated and been dumped by 19 Kahterines.  So in the wake of the K-19 Debacle, Colin's best friend Hassan convinces him to go on a road trip this last summer before college to take his mind off the break up.  With 10,000 dollars in his pocket and a goal to accomplish his "Euerka" moment, Colin and Hussan set out on an adventure of their lives.
John Green is the voice of a generation.  He writes witty, smart books for Young Adults and is an amazing writer and role model for our young men.
An Abundance of Katherines was a 2007 Michael L. Printz Honor book and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. It was also named one of the books of the year by Booklist, Horn Book, and Kirkus.
