An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Colin is a genius with a thing for girls named Katherine. Not Kate or Catherine or Katerina. Just K-a-t-h-e-r-i-n-e. But Katherines don't have a thing for Colin. He's dated 19 Katherines in his short life and each and every one of them have dumped him. Recent grad and now a former child prodigy, he's resigned himself to wallowing in regret but his best friend decides a road trip is in order. Colin and Hassan drive until they hit Nashville, TN then they turn West. Before they reach Memphis, Colin sees a sign advertising that the Archduke Ferdinand is buried in the tiny town of Gutshot, TN and they make a detour. There they find a dying Southern town and a girl named Lindsey. They decide to stay and discover that things aren't always as they seem.
