Colin has a problem with Katherines- Yes, that’s Katherines with an “s”. He can’t stop falling for them. So far, he has fallen for nineteen of them, and nineteen of them have dumped him. A child prodigy, who has just graduated from high school and is determined to make his mark on the world, Colin sets out on a road trip with his best friend. He decides, while on this trip, that he is going to determine the Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability in order to predict the future of relationships. All of the happenings add up to one crazy summer adventure.
This was a fun read. I will say that I did note enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska, but that may be because I didn’t relate to it as much on a personal level. Overall, though, it was still an entertaining book with the great character development and “finding yourself layered with comedic relief” style that I have come to love from John Green’s writing. I would recommend it, if that is what you’re looking for.
