Publisher's Summary

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 by Printz medalist John Green, acclaimed author of Looking for Alaska.

John Green Fans will Enjoy

Would you try another book from John Green and/or Jeff Woodman?

I fell in love with Green's sardonic, self-deprecating characters. Yes, I have and will read all of his books.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The main character is more difficult to relate to than others by this author and the other characters are a little too predictible and stereotypical. However, Green's wit shines through and makes this story better than many YA authors. Would recommend for John Green followers.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I like this narrator's voice and feel he is a great choice. He may sound a little older, but he manages to pull off the qualities of sounding smart, quirky, vulnerable, and funny.

Loved It

I have become a huge John Green fan. I listened to Paper Towns first (his latest). Paper Towns is better than Katherines but both are well done, funny and the narrator is perfect for the male characters that tell the story.
