Colin Singleton, noted child prodigy, has a type when it comes to relationships. Only his type doesn’t have anything to do with personality, or even looks. Its all about names. specifically one: Katherine. Every person he’s ever dated was named Katherine, spelled like that. And every Katherine he’s dated has dumped him. After Katherine 19, 19 heartbreaks from 19 Katherines, he decides he has to move on. So he packs his things, convinces his Judge Judy-loving best friend, Hassan, to go with him, and leaves. On a road trip going anywhere. There come across a town named Gutshot, where the Archduke Franz Ferdinand-whose death was the supposed spark of World War I- is buried. They stay with Hollis and her daughter Lindsey, who is dating- get this- a boy named Collin(nicknamed The other Colin by Hassan and Collin)Colin, being border line genius when it comes to math(though he won’t admit he is a genius), decides to come up with a formula to determine the outcome of relationships. He names it The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability. Him and Lindsey grow closer and closer… But she’s not a Katherine. But Colin is depending on the Theorem to prove he can be more than just a washed up child prodigy who reached his academic peak early… And maybe he can be a genius.
As always, we think highly of John Green as an author and you can get to know him better on his YouTube channel: vlogbrothers
