Always being dumped by girls named Katherine, Colin Singleton, a washed-up child prodigy with a Judge-Judy obsessed best friend, embarks on a quest to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which will impact all of his future relationships and change his life.
Annotation:
John Green's young-adult novel about teen love is original, hilarious, and anagram-riddled. Freshly graduated high school senior and brilliant child prodigy Colin Singleton sets out on a road trip with his portly, wise-cracking best friend, Hassan, to escape the heartbreak of being dumped. Not only does Colin obsess about being more than just a prodigy, but he only dates girls named Katherine, and they all throw him over in the end. A fatal pit-stop in rural Tennessee transforms their desperate road trip into a transformative event involving pig-hunting, a tampon string factory, and a fiery girl named Lindsey. A 2007 Printz Honor recipient and a Kirkus Best Children's Book of 2006.

Praise

There are tender moments of romance and sadness balanced by an ironic tone and esoteric footnotes along with complex math. Fully fun, challengingly complex and entirely entertaining." 08/15/2006

"Green's characters are quirky without having to gnaw soap or assemble a boyfriend from body parts. They're also genuine enough to counter the sweetness in this novel, in which no one but the rampaging boar really wants to hurt anyone." - Regina Marler 11/12/2006
