Just read An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. I liked it a lot but not as much as Looking for Alaska. Colin Singleton is a child prodigy who's losing intellectual steam as he gets into his late teens. He's also a serial dater--and dumpee--of Katherines, nineteen to date. Instead of sitting around and moping about the end of his latest relationship, Colin's best friend Hassan suggests they go on a road trip. They conveniently end up in the sticks with a cast of conveniently quirky, entertaining characters. One of the best parts of the novel is the mathematical theorem Colin comes up with to graph his relationships with Katherines I-XIX. The other great part was Hassan: his dialogue often had me laughing out loud like an idiot as if he were a real person in the room talking to me instead of somebody in a book.
