An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. 240 p. Penguin Young Readers Group, September, 2006.
Our road trip theme continues with An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. This is Green's second novel and possibly my favorite. It was published in 2006 and won a Printz Honor. Colin Singleton is a genius who thinks he's losing his edge. He has also had nineteen girlfriends - all named Katherine and they all dumped him. Colin thinks there's a geometric theorem in this and sets about to prove it. He sets out on a road trip with his best friend, Hassan, with rather hysterically funny results.
