An Abundance of Katherines, John Green

find this book in the Hawley Library: An abundance of Katherines

this is from the same author as Looking for Alaska, so I have been really looking forward to reading it. And it is very good - witty, smart, quirky. The writing style is pretty similar to Looking for Alaska but the whole thing is much lighter - the plot is lighter, and the writing style follows suit.

Colin is the main character, he's got a lot of hang-ups over absolutely nothing. And people try to help him see that, but basically no one succeeds. Not even his best friend - but he goes on a road trip to try to get over his latest break-up and winds up having some quirky adventures and more fun than he knew he was capable of.

Overall, a good read.
