    John Green, the author of Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns, is one of the most popular voices in contemporary young adult fiction and The Fault in Our Stars became an instant classic.

    You will probably have been in tears watching the big-screen adaptation that starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Engort as the devoted teenage lovers Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters and the book is just as heart-wrenching and poignant, but keeps a fine line in self-depreciating humour - especially from the wise-beyond-her-years Hazel.

    After meeting at a cancer support group, the cynical sufferer Hazel unexpectedly finds herself falling for the charms of Augustus and the novel follows the two as their relationship develops - taking in a romantic trip to Amsterdam in the process.

    Full of wit, sensitivity and observations about life and illness, this profound book will make readers of any age (especially teens) laugh and cry in equal measure.

    Written by Paper Towns and The Fault In Our Stars author John Green, An Abundance of Katherines follows the unlucky-in-love Colin as he heads on a road trip to forget his woes.

    An anagram-happy and washed-up child prodigy with 10,000 dollars in his pocket, Colin may have been dumped nineteen times but he's still determined to find the one - even though his accompanying best friend has made a strict rule of 'no Katherines'.

    However, Colin has other ideas and is determined to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability; which he hopes can predict the future of any relationship, win him the girl and avenge Dumpees all over the country!

    Funny, poignant and touching, John Green is the master of young adult fiction that pulls at the heartstrings and An Abundance of Katherines is no exception!

    Please note this book contains mature themes and strong language.
