    An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
    Colin Singleton has a tough life -- another Katherine has just dumped him (the 19th Katherine to do so!) and he believes he has grown out of his child-prodigy status. Nursing his wounds, he calls his friend Hassan, who has the perfect solution -- road trip! So off they go, in Colin's huge grey Oldsmobile, from New York to a landing in Gutshot Tennessee, where the real adventure begins -- vicious feral pigs, a dead archduke, the Theorum of Underlying Katherine Predictability (to predict all future relationships), a factory that makes string -- it's love, friendship, and the all traumas of a teenage prodigy life.
    Such fun! The characters were fabulous, the story was real (enough), and I loved all the random footnotes that litter the book with odd details. Though completely different in flavour than Looking for Alaska, this is definitely worth the read!
