Publisher's Summary

From the number one best-selling author of Turtles All the Way Down and The Fault in Our Stars

Michael L. Printz Honor Book
Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist
New York Times best seller

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 $10,000 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.

Critic Reviews

"Fully fun, challengingly complex, and entirely entertaining." (Kirkus starred review)

"Laugh-out-loud funny...a coming-of-age American road trip that is at once a satire of and tribute to its many celebrated predecessors." (Horn Book starred review)

"Imagine an operating room at the start of a daring but well-rehearsed procedure and you will have something of the atmosphere of An Abundance of Katherines: every detail considered, the action unrolling with grace and inevitability." (New York Times Book Review)

Fun and irreverent

Great portrayal of awkward adolescence! I love the banter, the jokes, the characterization, and the overall moral of the story. Relatable on many levels.

struggled to finish listening

The book was somewhat decent in the beginning but lacked luster in the middle and picked up a tinyyy bit towards the end again. There were at least two times throughout the listen that the audio seemed to have skipped forward, but I repeated it several times and it's just missing a chunk of the story there (not sure how much since it cut out mid sentence and then just picked up again).

Great story

I started reading this book several years ago in a hard copy and couldn’t get into it. The narrator was so captivating it wasn’t hard to get through this book now in less than a week. Such a great story with several different characters and voices. Has it’s funny moments that actually had me laughing out loud. Such a good unexpected love story.
