It is a super quick read, a total riot, and majorly addictive – you won’t be able to put it down. Well…unless you’re like me and you pause for just a few to check out some of the various bands and songs that Wes was hating on and then find yourself unable to stop listening to Kool and the Gang. Yeah. Definitely a band that’s not too hard to hate on.
A few of my hate to love bands include the Violent Femmes, KC and the Sunshine Band, Iron & Wine, The Shins, Arcade Fire. Who do you hate to love?

About THE HATERS
Title: THE HATERS
Author: Jesse Andrews
Release date: April 5, 2016
Publisher: Amulet Books
Formats: Hardcover, paperback, audio, eBook
From Jesse Andrews, author of the New York Times bestselling Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and screenwriter of the Sundance award–winning motion picture of the same name, comes a groundbreaking young adult novel about music, love, friendship, and freedom as three young musicians follow a quest to escape the law long enough to play the amazing show they hope (but also doubt) they have in them.
Inspired by the years he spent playing bass in a band himself, The Haters is Jesse Andrews’s road trip adventure about a trio of jazz-camp escapees who, against every realistic expectation, become a band.
For Wes and his best friend, Corey, jazz camp turns out to be lame. It’s pretty much all dudes talking in Jazz Voice. But then they jam with Ash, a charismatic girl with an unusual sound, and the three just click. It’s three and a half hours of pure musical magic, and Ash makes a decision: They need to hit the road. Because the road, not summer camp, is where bands get good. Before Wes and Corey know it, they’re in Ash’s SUV heading south, and The Haters Summer of Hate Tour has begun.
In his second novel, Andrews again brings his brilliant and distinctive voice to YA, in the perfect book for music lovers, fans of The Commitments and High Fidelity, or anyone who has ever loved—and hated—a song or a band. This witty, funny coming-of-age novel is contemporary fiction at its best.
“truly hilarious….a teen road trip packed with music and drama.” — Kirkus
“an uproariously funny addition to the teen-road-trip canon…readers will be sucked into this story, a raunchy bromance in the vein of Superbad, which celebrates friendship and adventure… Effortlessly readable, deeply enjoyable, and, given the years since Andrews’ fantastic debut, well worth the wait.”—Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
“… a classic road trip novel and a contemporary and inventive teen adventure.” —The Horn Book
