About the Book
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.

I loved Me, Earl & the Dying Girl and can't wait for this book. I love the simplicity of the cover and the bold use of color.
I love the cover and yellow is great. I am a big fan of Me, Earl and the Dying Girl, so am eagerly awaiting this prize!
The cover is soooooo hilarious and creative! The fact that it expresses the book just using an amp and headphones, is pretty neat. It gives you the impression that it is definitely about music and some sarcasm i think! Looking forward to this!
I love the cover design, the primary colors and minimalism are brilliant. I'm also very intrigued by the plot; music and teenage-hood being so intermingled as it is, this coming of age story promises to be very relatable.
I love the cover--fits the synopsis well. I'm a music person and think this is going to be an exciting read for me!
