An Abundance Of Katherine’s By: John Green

Colin Singleton is a 17 year old who is afraid that he is no longer a genius. And over the span of his life he has dated nineteen girls all named Katherine. But when he is dumped by Katherine XIX, Colin and his friend Hassan go on a road trip so that Colin can feel whole again.

I would recommend this book to young adults(ages 14 and up) who enjoy John Green’s style of writing, and love funny books. One of the reasons I enjoy this book is because of the interesting and hilarious footnotes. The theme is young adult fiction, romance, relationships, being unique, happiness, and knowledge. This is not one of John Green;s best novels but is definitely worth reading.

John Green is an author, screenwriter, vlogger, producer and actor. He was born August 24 1977, and has won the 2006 Printz Award for Looking For Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars was number one on the New York Times Best Seller list in January 2012. He graduated from Kenyon College with a double major in English and Religious Studies. He now lives in Orlando, Florida.
