A World Book Day 2018 Special Edition
19 Katherines and counting...
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.
John Green's debut, Looking for Alaska, redefined literature for young adults. Addressing real-world concerns in a voice instantly respective of young people, Green's writing almost overnight made YA reading a relevant and viable field, spawning countless imitators and establishing YA as one of publishing's key areas. An Abundance of Katherines was his second book, with four further novels since.
