Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist 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.

It didn't work very well for me. This book has no point to it and it is kind of confusing how this book changes from first point of view to a second point of view.
Same name, different stories, same endings. It's always been like that for him. “Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”
Attention contemporary lovers, an abundance of Katherines is a book written by John Green. If you haven't heard of John green, where the hell have you been? He wrote a new york times bestselling book called 'the fault in our stars' and now has been adapted into a movie and on DVDs.
