“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”
– John Green
 
ok so this book is more geared toward young adults, however it has a nice message. The book centers around Colin an 18 year old child protegee who began to read at age two. He now feels that all his greatest moments have passed because has plateaued into average smart. To add to this confusing time in his life he has dated only girls who had the name Katherine (as the title implies of course) and has been dumped 19 times. 
Colin has a small mental break down when the 19th Katherine (or Katherine XIX) breaks up with him, so he is encouraged by his old time (and only) friend Hasan to go on a road trip with him. They arrive in a small Tennessee town where they are employed and meet a girl (name not Katherine) who is somewhat of a chameleon around people. 
This is a cute story about love, breakup, finding out who are your real friends and who are the people you can act like your-self around, and well as mathematical formulas and bathtubs.
