Description from GoodReads:
Do you have a favorite band?
Okay. Good. Unfortunately, it also sucks. And Wes and Corey can tell you exactly how.
There is nothing Wes and Corey can’t hate on. Even bands they love. In fact, they are incapable of loving anything without relentlessly figuring out ways to hate it, too.
And so when they are sent to a place as soul-crushing as jazz camp—which is populated almost completely by competitive maniacs who are trying to seem chill by talking in Jazz Voice—Wes and Corey hate on it with extreme prejudice. Fortunately, so does a girl named Ash, who may even be a bigger and better hater than the two of them combined.
When the three of them run away from camp, start their own band, and go on tour, it seems like a great idea. Except that they are faced with a basically unanswerable question: How can confirmed haters even try to make music that maybe doesn’t suck?
The answer takes the form of a catastrophic, hilarious, romantically tangled road trip from Jesse Andrews, bestselling author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. You can feel free to hate on it. But you can also love it, too. Because maybe those are kind of the same thing.
If you think this book about a kid who hates everything and is complaining the entire time you’re wrong.
The Haters by Jesse Andrews is about three teenagers Wes, Corey and Ash who all have a common interest: Jazz Camp Sucks. For Wes and Corey, Jazz Camp tends to be lame and then they encounter a girl named Ash who that they click with. Ash decides to break out of the god-awful jazz camp and barely convinces her soon to be outlaws to join her. Ash dreams they’ll become a band and get discovered on the road touring all around with endless money. This book will make you wonder why these three ever got together in the first place and what they did in their humiliating yet crazy and hilarious adventures.
If you like Looking For Alaska by John Green you’ll love The Haters by Jesse Andrews. Both books are about friendship, crazy adventures and discovering who you are when you stop focusing on what others think.
