Rachel read An Abundance of Katherines and this is what she thought…

Colin has been dumped 19 times, all by girls named Katherine. Heartbroken after breakup number 19, Colin and his best friend take a road-trip and end up in Gutshot, Tennessee where they meet a girl named Lindsey. Colin and Lindsey work together to come up with a mathematical equation that could solve his dating woes. There’s even an appendix in the back for all the math equations. This book is hilarious AND educational! Math! History! Wordplay! The Archduke Franz Ferdinand!

Who would you recommend this book to?

I would recommend this book to teens who enjoy humorous and witty novels. Fans of this book can read more titles by John Green, like Looking for Alaska and Will Grayson, Will Grayson.
