Having been dumped for the nineteenth time by a girl named Katherine, recent high school graduate Colin sets off on a road trip with his best friend to find some new direction in life while also trying to create a mathematical formula to explain his relationships.
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

"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
